I am very proud to announce that I have joined the team of the very talented writers, photographers and editors that bring you TEXAS LIVE magazine. I will be doing a regular garden column that focuses on the organic growing tips that will allow you to grow the best plants possible in the very tough and unpredictable Texas climate. My first article explains the “hows” and “whys” of soil preparation. It also includes suggested planting times for the most commonly grown flowers, veggies, perennials, fruit trees and berries in the state.
TEXAS LIVE is an incredibly beautiful and informative magazine that covers the very best of “All Things Texan.” My wife and I devour every issue. We particularly love the Home and Garden section (no surprise there). Each month, this section allows us to peek inside some truly amazing “country homes” that have been decorated by some very talented Texas designers. Since Sally and I have been remodeling our own “country house” for the past five years each of these featured homes are an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration.
When we are not gardening, remodeling or decorating we love to travel. If we get the chance to run away for a few days we can count on TEXAS LIVE to tell us where to go, what to see, where to shop, where to stay and what to eat once we get there.
The “LIVE” part of the TEXAS LIVE name is actually an acronym that stands for Luxurious, Informative, Vibrant, and Entertaining. Those four words perfectly capture the essence of this beautiful and entertaining magazine. You can find TEXAS LIVE in many of the businesses that are featured in its pages. You can also buy it at your local HEB, Super WalMart, Books a Million, Barnes and Noble, and the Austin airport. The magazine usually sells out on newsstands, so go ahead and subscribe to ensure that you don’t miss a single issue.
The writers at TEXAS LIVE are dedicated to finding the best of everything that Texas has to offer. However, since Texas is a really big place it is impossible to for this small group of dedicated reporters to find and report on all that is wonderful in the greatest state in the America. So, if you have an idea for a story, or you would like to contribute, feel free to drop them a line. They are always looking for new story ideas, writers, and photographers.
