You can always find my dad spending his work-free days out in the yard - trimming, pruning, watering and working up a sweat. He's labored on putting in a new garden in the front of the house, which has blossomed into a beautiful collection of rosemary bushes, a fig tree and aloe vera, among other plants. There are icy winters, where I'll help him cover all the fragile plants we can. And while the soil is defenseless against a scorching hot summer - Texas is experiencing its worst drought in decades - the garden has survived with dad's most diligent and productive yard work.
