Posey, sweet Posey finds home...thanks everybody!

Sweet, Sweet Posey. She's a border collie my friends found out in the country. She'd been hanging around a store for a week and no one claimed her. They put signs all over and brought her back with them to Austin.

I took her to the vet and she's in terrific shape. She's about a year old, heartworm free. She's had her Frontline and has had her heartworm meds for this month. Vet couldn't test for worms that visit.

She's a cuddler. A people person. A snuggly girl with a great personality. She comes on command and is housebroken.

I have two dogs already or I would keep her. She's a true border collie and wants to herd anything that moves. She would be better in a home where she is the only dog. She's territorial and aggressive when another dog gets close to her food or toy. That's the only downside I can find for someone who already has pets.

You can email me with questions. curlin@curlinreedsullivan.com Or stop in and see her this week at Happiness 2213-b south first street austin tx 512.440.8600 My fave gift, garden, home store on south first here in Austin.

community garden

this is the most beautiful my pippingtooth garden ever looked.  that's because it was a community garden at the time.  a community of all my sweet friends who make their living helping woebegone gardeners like me make visions come true.  elena...magical gardener who now runs an amazing austin garden & vintage gift store called, Happiness.  christian who i refer to as my 3rd son home from college even though he's a bona fide grown-up with a beautiful little daughter & sweet wife.  he can make anything, craft anything, build anything my wonky brain can dream up.  he's busy making all things gorgeous and sturdy at a lovely boutique hotel here in austin now.  Doug, sweet doug...who is a tireless soul.  An early riser with the patience to deal with almost any garden folly i can conjure.   These folks made my pippingtooth garden my dream community garden.  A place where a hearty spade and a hearty laugh were always in plenty supply.  

my love of gardening grows in direct correlation to the chance of finding someone i love in my garden.  i'm an extrovertus gigantus who grows best in a the full sunshine of dear friends to garden with.  

which is not to say that my garden is lonely now.  how could it be with all the wonderful memories of time spent with my bestest buds digging and hoeing and staking and planting.  

no, it's not lonely.  just quieter now.  and way too much space for one gabby artist girl to manage by herself.   so it's scaled back.  way back.  and i let whatever's green and creeping fill in around the plants and flowers.  my dear elena comes once every two weeks or so to keep my palette of flowers blooming.  the garden hums when she enters it.  so do i.   her energy is green and vibrant and loving.   the plants and flowers grow towards her light.   red dragonflies form a corona above her head as she tends the littles shoots and buds.

i love my garden.  in all shapes and sizes.  the memories are perennial.  the friendships grown there everlasting.
