Garden Betty and Gerald Ronga's Hill Country

On a hilltop overlooking Lake Travis in Leander, see how Betty Ronga turned her new garden into a butterfly, bee, and bird sanctuary. When she and her husband, Gerald, built their house of two dreams, they wanted it to be heavenly for the wildlife, too. Its continual rotation of flowering and larval plants, and a stone-ledged pond attract wildlife in all seasons. Nearby, Betty and Gerald harvest vegetables and fruits for their own kitchen. Meander with them through a front courtyard of fragrance, color, and Mexican art.
