Thorn and Beak Armour

By: GardenGrrl, 2:15 AM GMT on July 26, 2014

Shrub Roses grow great in Texas. They need lots of pruning which sometimes becomes a blood sport. I would wear leather gloves and a long sleeve blue jean shirt and still get impaled somehow.

I also have an Evil Cockatoo named Syd. We are thinking of changing his name to Hannibal Lector because he is a charming conversationalist. He entices you to pet him while cooing things like: "I love you", "Peek-a-boo" and calls everyone in the house by name, even...

Roxie Hollywood Film Fest

By: GardenGrrl, 3:30 PM GMT on July 17, 2014

Hey, we have rain!!! Lots of rain all day long. This is good. What is more fun on a rainy day than sitting around watching movies?

Okay, there are a lot of things that are more fun to do when it's raining if you have a touch of ADD. For those of you that are a bit more sedate, how 'bout cute animal videos. Okay, my cute animals to be exact. Ok? :D

It'll be fun.

Here is my latest video starring Syd and Roxie. A plague of locusts has...

When I was a little girl my Dad would drive us to the Gulf Coast. When we saw a green hazy sky on the highway horizon we knew we were close because that was Houston. A city built from petroleum refineries and large chemical processing plants. I guess a green polluted sky was to be expected.

Today, a few years later, okay more than 40, Houston is listed as number four in the top five cities in America with green certified commercial real estate. This mean...

Quartz Crystals #23

So we went to Hot Springs for vacation the other day and it was supposed to rain the entire time. Having already booked the motel (our favorite, The B Inn), got someone to cover my work shifts, well there was no backing out.

We went to Bass Pro and bought some cheap rain pants and rain coat, cow girled up and went for it. Had a blast!

Of course because it was supposed to rain most of the time I only brought my old old point and shoot. Serious...

Trinity Wind Fest Updated

By: GardenGrrl, 12:09 AM GMT on May 18, 2014

As promised, am finally getting around to telling you all a bit about Dallas and some of the ways it is trying to re-invent itself. When I moved back here some seventeen or so years ago, I hated Dallas. It was a soul-less concrete vacuum of commerce. Nothing else. No art scene. Pretentious and materialistic. And worst of all I was stranded here.

Brought to you by the Girl Scouts and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge visionaries, I share with you The Trinity ...
