Discovery Garden, located at Cedar Hill's public library, has been featured in the Dallas Morning News and Cedar Hill Bubble Life. Often groups stop by for tours of the garden. Recently, I was at the garden watering the plants and pulling a few weeds. I was just in awe of the number of bees and dragon flies that were in the garden. Over the past few years there was concern about lack of bees in the garden. As I was working a man named Jay Brittain asked about the community garden. It turns out he is the Director-Creative Services for Forestar Group in Austin, TX. He was in town to take marketing photographs for Forestar. Forestar is building some apartments in Cedar Hill, TX. He actually came to photograph White Rhino, a coffee house located next to the library, but looked over and saw the community garden and the sunflowers I planted and wanted to take some photos. I asked if he minded if I took photos of him taking photos of my sunflowers. He said he didn't mind at all. You can view out his photography sit by searching for Jay Brittain on Google.
These are the photos I took that day. The flowers had peeked really, but I think they still looked majestic.
Welcome to my gardening blog. My father passed to me a love for gardening. I wanted to share this passion with my girls, so they would know the origin of their food. (not the local grocery store). So, I dedicated myself to giving them what my father gave me; and if I can inspire someone to garden, the reward is even greater.
