Gruene, Texas

This is my favorite town in Texas!  Gruene (pronounced Green) is home to Texas country music at Gruene Hall, lazy summer days floating the river, great food, bed and breakfasts, shopping, and good 'ole Texas pride.  It's like coming home when I get the chance to visit.  Here are a few photos of my visit on Saturday.

We visited Cowboy Kringle, and in case you were wondering what bad kids get these days, it's not coal and rocks anymore.  Now you only get a picture of that present you were really wanting...I'm wondering why I didn't think of that!


Thornless Prickly Pear Cactus

This Oak is HUGE!

Never mind me, pay attention to my favorite vine in the background, Mascagnia!

My son took this photo of a vine growing up a shop wall.  I kinda like it!

I wish I would have taken more photos of all the container plantings they had, but I was busy window shopping.  I just love this town, its like taking a step back in time to when the days were easy, worry free and all that mattered is you had some music to tap your toes to and an inner tube to float the river!

  1. Gruene looks like a neat place to visit. I love the Salvia blossom and the photo of the vine climbing up the wooden wall.
