Author Teri Speight came to Austin this week to share inspiring stories from her new book, Black Flora, at my Garden Spark speaker series. An enthusiastic audience came out to hear Teri’s talk under the big live oak at beautiful Barton Springs Nursery.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from that evening.

Thanks to everyone who came out for Teri’s talk! The next talk is coming up on November 17th, when landscape architect Jennifer Orr of Studio Balcones will talk about designing functional landscapes that provide habitat, are symbiotic, and can survive the harsh Central Texas elements. It promises to be a timely and inspiring talk after the challenging summer we just experienced. Scroll down to Digging Deeper (below) for info on subscribing to the Garden Spark talks.
