One of the highlights of the Gardenblogger Spring Fling in Austin was getting to meet the one and only
Lucinda Hutson, gardener and food writer extraordinaire (How’s Tequila for a book title, Amy?) and experiencing her hospitality.
Of course when your house and front garden look like THIS, visitors feel instantly drawn in. Then Lucinda appears – just as colorful as the house and garden – to greet us and begin our tour. Outdoors and indoors, we see not just plants at their peak but Mexican art and design to die for. To this Easterner it was all so lush and exotic.
But my favorite detail? That Lucinda approached each item she wanted to show us and beamed: "Isn’t this FUN?" And damn right, everything about our visit WAS fun, even before her special Sunday morning picker-upper was served.
So I thank the delightful Lucinda for sharing her world with us and on this holiday weekend I ask readers: Is there any fun in YOUR garden?
