Mary DeMuth lives with her husband, Patrick, and their three children in Texas, where they returned to from Southern France where they planted a church and tended the first garden shown below. Mary’s novels include Wishing on Dandelions, which was a finalist for the Retailer's Choice Award and the ACFW Carol Award. Mary also writes non-fiction. Says Mary, "I'm a chef wanna-be, a sometimes triathlete (emphasis on sometimes), an on-again-off-again gardener, and a passionate follower of Jesus. I'm in love with my husband and kids and am zealous about writing and speaking." Her home on the web is

Back in the Lonestar–or Bluebonnet State–Mary grows flowers and veggies, including potatoes, tomatoes, purple beans, squash (all kinds), asparagus, beets, and cantaloupe.

Beautiful garden! I have to say, Mary, I love that backpack purse. I want one just like it! :-)

Love it - "planted a church and tended a garden" - hope someone's tending both of them now!

Such lush greenery!

This is such a great series -- it provides wonderful insight to authors to get a peek into their backyards. I love the rock path to the gazebo and the privacy this yard provides -- I imagine Mary can spend hours creating in her yard.

Cindy, I got that purse in Italy. :)

Mocha with Linda: Yes, there are still team members there planting a church. :)

Susan, ah I would love a gazebo!
