Welcome! As "Annie in Austin" I blog about gardening in Austin, TX with occasional looks back at our former gardens in Illinois. My husband Philo & I also make videos - some use garden images as background for my original songs, some capture Austin events & sometimes we share videos of birds in our garden.
Come talk about gardens, movies, music, genealogy and Austin at the Transplantable Rose and listen to my original songs on YouTube. For an overview read Three Gardens, Twenty Years. Unless noted, these words and photos are my copyrighted work.
Garden Bloggers Bloom Day had to be bumped to Annie's Addendum - this year February 15th the day to celebrate our annual Austin Marathon in song.
I may personally be built for comfort, not for speed, but Philo and I are experienced at hosting out-of-town runners! We've had lots of fun being part of the action by taking marathoners to the Expo to get their packets & chips, stoking them up the day befor, getting them to the start line on time, driving around to a few points along the 26.2 mile route to wave and cheer, whooping it up at the finish line and then taking the victors out to dinner.
I hope you enjoy this little tune about seeing the Austin Marathon as a fan and member of the support team. It was written with love - maybe it can count as a late Valentine!
