A little over a year ago

Here is a look back to February 9, 2020. The concern over COVID was growing, and we were within a couple of weeks of leaving our RV resort near Austin to head back to the “safety” of our place in Indiana.

Solstice Outdoors is a unique gallery

Out side of Dripping Springs, Texas in the Hill Country near Austin is a thriving landscape design business that also doubles as a place to view and purchase unique outdoor artwork. Solstice Outdoors Ltd. is based in a former ranch home surrounded by 2 acres of what is now a whimsical display of outdoor works of art and decoration.

Through an online mobile search Sher found this place while we were prowling about the Dripping Springs area. Thanks to google maps we soon found this surprising gallery of both indoor and outdoor craftsmanship. Each of the rooms in the house were used to display local artist’ works, including jewelry, tapestries and pictures.

By far the most unique part of Solstice is the “backyard”. As soon as you go out into the yard you are greeted with a variety of ‘creatures” in all sizes and materials. The company offers landscaping design and construction. Walking through the grounds was like walking through an outdoor arts garden.

Often we don’t have a set itinerary some days when we explore an area. It is always an adventure to find things by just driving around looking for signs, or hitting up the mobile search for “things near you”. The day we found Solstice Outdoor, Ltd. was one of those days.

  1. Beautiful pictures of the works for art. Thanks for posting. We were in the Hill Country but missed them.
    We have done things like that and found many interesting things to see and I wish I had been as good about labeling them properly when I saved them. I am slowly grouping them together for blogs. From now on when we travel, I plan on paying more attention.

    • Sher is very talented in the way she can always find the neatest attractions to visit. There is so much to see and do in the Hill Country. Did you find the Texas Hill Country Olive Co. ? Worth a visit for sure. (We have a post about it under Texas, Things to see and do) 😉
