Once again it is time for the end of the year garden slideshow. I hope it warms your heart on this cold winter day. Even with all the pretty flowers and foliage, I still like the "kitten in my garden shoe" photo the most! 
P.S. After many exasperating attempts, I can't get the thing to embed
Click on the link below, then find the slideshow tab to see the slideshow.
This monarch from my garden will lead the way!
Note: All of the photos were taken here in my Houston garden except for these 3:
1)The giant bottle tree is at the Antique Rose Emporium in Independence, Texas
2) The very cool birdhouse collection belongs to my garden friend Janine here in Houston
3) The sidewalk with the white building and herbs spilling over is in Castroville, Texas


  1. A lovely reminder of what you have featured on your blog in the past twelve months :)

  2. Fun to look back over the best of 2012 and see your garden as it grows.

    No problem finding them. I can't embed slideshows now either. They changed it or something so I use photobucket.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Very nice. Enjoyed seeing the plants, but also the critters - the kitties, chicken, butterfly, and even the raccoon! What a wonderful little slice of heaven you have there. Happy New Year!

  4. I think we need to call you King of the Bottle Trees. heh he. Nice review and photos.

  5. Wishing you a joyous New Year, David. Always a pleasure to stop by and see what is happening in your Houston garden!

  6. Thanks for your holiday wishes. I’m sorry for not quick response, I’ve been tied up with grandparenting and had little time with computer. Since Japan lies at far east, it will be the New Year in an hour. Wish you a happy and prosperous 2013, David.


  7. I have to admit that the kitten in the shoe is indeed one of the most cutest picture that I have ever seen :-). All nice photos. Happy New Year :-)

  8. Beautiful pics! ^.^

    Happy new year,

    ^_^ BB

  9. Happy new year, David! Here's to more kittens in your shoes in 2013.

  10. David, the photos are gorgeous. I do like the one with the kitten in the shoe, too. I enjoyed the photos. Here's wishing you and yours and your garden a wonderful New Year!


I always appreciate your comments & questions! Happy Gardening from David/ Tropical Texana
