The people of Castroville love their city.
The Alsatian pioneer spirit is evident at our favorite gardening spot.
This is our favorite garden shop in downtown Castroville.
They have a beautiful butterfly garden.
The paths are marked with these rustic cedar portals.
Here's the name ~ Albros Casa y Garden
(I'll show you my souvenir at the end)
This indoor/outdoor garden store has many surprises.
The French Alsatian architecture meets Texas native plants.
Another part of the garden surrounding the garden store.
I love the rustic look of early Texas pioneers.
A cactus box serves as an alternative to pottery.
The outhouse is filled with birdhouses.
Another view of the gardens.
Here's what I bought. It's not a clay pot, but some type of antique clay holder.
The owner told me it was a sugar mold.
And here's what I used it for...my paintbrushes.
She had a bunch outside, but they were expensive so I could only buy one!
So if you are ever in San Antonio, take the 20 minute drive west down U.S. 90 to Castroville, Texas.
You'll love it!
One of the many gardens in town. It's a great 'walking' town with very little traffic.
Thanks for stopping by! David/:0)
