Look Around You for Ideas in Your Own Yard ~ 101

Burroughs Landscaping reminds us to take a look around our beautiful countryside!

If you haven't taken time to stop and look around outside lately, do it now! We tend to get caught up in everyday life and take for granted the beauty that surrounds us everyday. One of my favorite places is under an umbrella at the ocean watching the waves roll in and baby seagulls make their way through the sand. But, I've often wondered if I lived there, would I get caught up in everyday life, working and running errands and miss the beauty after awhile. Would it just become background?? I would hope not, but I've asked people who live on the coast and their response is...regretfully, yes.

With that being said, look around at the landscape that surrounds us everyday. Watch as you drive to work, or take the kids to the ballpark. Here in Texas Hill Country, we have some of the most beautiful, peaceful views there are. While you hear words that may sound negative to describe our landscapes like "drought", or "deer resistant", living in our gorgeous area of the country is definitely a far cry from negative! Take a weekend drive through some of our countryside and admire the flowering bushes, the interesting cacti, and yes, even the amazing formation of rocks. Take pictures to reflect and gain ideas. Take a picnic, or even overnight bag and enjoy the scenery. Notice the passes cut through in your daily commute and continue to be amazed how the earth is formed and how beautiful the layers of rock are.
Begin your adventure and work your way through our gorgeous region. Boerne offers hiking trails and back roads. On the way to Bandera, you will be in awe as you see rugged limestone hills and paths along river valleys. Arrive in Kerrville, there will be no disappointment in the natural scenic beauty. With parks and outdoor festivals, there is plenty to do, but be sure and remember to see as well! You may just spot the perfect new flower you've been searching for to add to your garden. Continue your scenic drive to Ingram, watching for natural plants and flowers nestled along the back roads. Ready for more panoramic views? Carry on to Hunt, TX. Observe the architecture from German immigrant stone influence to old style southern architecture. Take pictures to mimic in your own garden at home. Don't miss Fredericksburg in your exploration, as it boasts Enchanted Rock. The amazing blue Texas sky is quite a site. If you climb to the top, explore local plants, trees and flowers. Remember these when you return home, create a natural retreat right in your own backyard!
