Spring in Austin . . . with dog

A testimony to what even a small drop of rain can do for an Austin garden in a drought.  

Welcome to our back yard in mid-February.  
We lost most of the zoysia grass to a fungus last summer, 
so my anticipation is to see some recovery after lots of TLC following the diagnosis.
(We came to our senses way too late: "Why are there increasing amounts of yellow patches in our back yard?")
We also gained a dog last fall, so as another discovered blogger in Austin said, right now, it's "Garden by Dog," til I can get tips on gardening WITH dog.
