Perched high above the Pedernales River, there resides a gardener who gardens through an artist’s eye. Come step through a magical purple door where fairies live and butterflies flutter while the world seems far away and everyday troubles dissolve.
Shari started on her gardening journey in 2009 by enhancing her caliche soil with tons of organic matter. “Good soil is the foundation of any beautiful garden,” she says. From there Shari took the time to get acquainted with the land and natural beauty that was already in place. Slowly she started creating beds filled with host and nectar plants for butterflies that fill our Texas Hill Country. She then studied and learned from the lavender farms in Blanco and decided she, too, could grow the beautiful lavender plants.
Shari next created hillside terracing filled with native plants, fruit trees, lavender, vegetables, and a piano…..yes, a piano that all happily reside together. Chandeliers dangle overhead while you sit and contemplate it all in an upright vintage boat.
Odd-shaped driftwood finds itself home to all kinds of succulents that lead you into Shari’s greenhouse and collected craft area. Indeed, this is no ordinary garden, but one filled with fairy dust, rocking chairs lined up to survey the setting sun across the Pedernales River and await the whimsical magic that this gardener will next dream up.
Join us as we share this garden of creature delights, hopping toads and butterfly wings that await you in this beautiful Texas Hill Country garden!
