Hello! Welcome to The Whimsical Gardener. I'm Cat and I live in Austin, Texas and garden in zone 8 on the edge of the Texas Hill Country.
I'm an avid gardener and amateur photographer. My love of nature, design and art inspired me to create The Whimsical Gardener blog as a journal to record the happenings of my suburban garden. With this blog I hope to inspire others as we travel this gardening journey together.
Gardening in Central Texas has taught me not to take myself too seriously which has resulted in a whimsical and light-hearted gardening style. I like a playful feel and try to find unique, unexpected ways to enhance the garden.
Over the last seven years, I've focused on creating a garden where wildlife can thrive using native and adapted plants. It is fascinating to observe the diverse wildlife that calls our garden home.
