A botanical oasis in Stoney, Texas

Variegated Yucca in bloom.Mom had been telling me about this place since she visited last fall. It is the home of restoration expert Bill Marquis in Stoney, Texas. Bill's wife June is an avid gardener with immense knowledge of native Texas plants. The couple was holding an antiques auction that day, which is why we headed out there. However, I spent most of the time looking at and taking pictures of the beautiful gardens. June said that she doesn't water for the most part, plants have to be drought tolerant and fend for themselves!


Mom planted seed of this Standing Cypress and I hope to get some seeds after her plant blooms. So pretty, and apparently evergreen as well.
