Introduction

Last September, Adam Black (Director of Horticulture, Peckerwood Gardens) and I spent a little under three weeks on an incredible road trip in Texas that took us from Austin all the way to Hudspeth county on the very western border of the state and then back all the way across to a few of its very eastern counties with, of course, a prolonged stop in the most extraordinary Big Bend National Park, as well as some exploring of the Edwards Plateau in the middle.
