Welcome!

Bella Jardins Boutique is all about my gardening adventures in zone 8 of beautiful East Texas in the Piney Woods area. Not only will you get to follow along on my adventures of starting a brand new garden with a blank slate of land, but you’ll also be able to buy plants that are tried and true for this area, of course along with some specialty plants that I can’t live without. And that’s where the “Boutique” part of the name comes from. The plants will be the same size plants we’ve all bought from the store-front garden centers, the difference will be that you’ll order them on-line and I’ll deliver them to you. I’ll have that part of the website up and running soon.

In the meantime, I’ll make plenty of posts about my garden, the weather, my dog Ziva, and whatever other topics strike my fancy. So be sure to visit often to see what we’re up to next!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering what the name “Bella Jardins Boutique” is all about: well, I wanted something different, and I’ve always loved the Italian word “bella” which means beautiful and the French word “jardins” which means gardens, so I put them together to come up with “Bella Jardins Boutique” which means “Beautiful Gardens Boutique.”

Happy digging in the dirt …
