Delphiniums and hollyhocks and roses, oh my! Andrew Ong and Jared Goza of gayswhogarden invited me to see the spring show in their East Austin garden at the end of April. Although it was unseasonably hot that day, I marveled over their cottage garden beauties, including flowers you don’t often see in Austin, like delphiniums.
A pretty pelargonium
And hollyhocks! These flowers always remind me of my mom’s former garden in Oklahoma. Hollyhocks don’t like our sauna-like humidity, so I’m impressed that Andrew and Jared can grow them.
One of their many, many roses
And more sky blue-and-lavender delphiniums
Thanks for sharing your spring lovelies with me, Andrew and Jared! Readers, if you’d like to see my fall visit to their garden, click here.
