I love visiting Blanco, Texas. It started out as being a halfway mark for my best friend and I to meet for lunch and spend the day together. We have an early lunch, then walk over to one of our favorite places, Blanco Gardens.
It is a short walk from the cafe, and we always end up bringing back trays of plants on the walk back.
Amelia Lintner, the owner, is wonderful. Friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Her gardens are colorful and invite you to explore. She carries trees, shrubs, herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables. She also has a wonderful selection of succulents, which I love! You will also find a nice assortment of planters, garden soils and amendments too, as well as a lovely gift shop inside. It is a wonderful place to relax and browse. The zinnias and succulents I bought from her this year have been outstanding.

The porch on her shop is a cool, shady place to relax while contemplating your purchases. 😉
Inside the shop
Amelia has a beautiful selection of planters and slag glass in the shop as well as seeds and other gardening supplies.

This is an amazing selection of lavender. To the left is a room with some of the succulents.
One of her succulent arrangements. I love this ice plant.
Recycled tires. How cool is that?!
Love this bat!
Slag glass in a fun display.
That’s a big boot!
A fun area with various decorative items.
If you are out and about in the Hill Country of central Texas, stop by and say hello to Amelia, take a stroll through her gardens, relax on the porch and take home a plant or two.
