Office Field Trip!!
After lunch we made our second stop in San Marcos. At the Madrone Nursery, the owner kindly showed us around his ranch. Dan, a specialist in the Asteraceae plant family, had impressive knowledge of native and adapted species suited for our Texas conditions. Combining research and business, Dan has established a beautiful country nursery. His property includes his ranch, library, a deerskin teepee and an entourage of Blue Lacey dogs (which I learned is the state dog of Texas), chickens, roosters, peacocks and guineas. All in all, our field trip was a success; the perfect mix of business and pleasure!
