Antique Roses and Puttering in the Garden...

We share an interest in Antique Roses and Native Texas Plants. Our first home—WAY back in 1980—we landscaped entirely with Native Texas Plants and antique roses. We have followed that pattern in both our home in Pecan Grove and our dream house that we built in 2003. We have nearly 2 acres now to “putter” in and it is just enough to keep us off the streets, and give us enough planned garden projects to keep us busy until we are probably 80. Our Antique Rose population has exploded!


Here are some pictures of the beginning of our landscape efforts at our home in Windloch Estates.
