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.

Teri and me and Earle, a gigantic 500-lb. staghorn fern donated to BSN by Joanna Gaines. As good as making a trip to Waco to visit Magnolia Market, Teri declared!

Barton Springs Nursery is the sponsor of Garden Spark and hosts the talks in their outdoor classroom.

Plants are the family you choose.

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.
