As a teenager, Anne Elise Urrutia ventured into Miraflores, the disappearing family garden of her great-grandfather, Aureliano Urrutia, in San Antonio, Texas. Over the years she has continued to explore the garden and its history.

She received her English degree from Colorado College and blogs at She lives in San Antonio.
