Bluebonnets in Texas 2010

One morning this week, as I was driving down the road, I saw several hillsides covered with lush, rolling waves of bluebonnet flowers. A mere two days later, cameras in hand, we found that we had missed the height of the bluebonnet season. While unable to share photos of that lovely early morning sight, I think that this photograph which we were able to take is still very nice.

The White Chocolate Crape Myrtles have not started blooming yet, but I have been eager to use this overlooked photograph from last year.

Garden April 17, 2010

We spent an hour in our flower garden yesterday. I felt so refreshed after admiring the beauty just outside our back door.

Sky over the Mississippi River

This is one of my favorite nature photographs. It is a picture of the sky over the Mississippi River in August.

Knitting socks?

Yesterday I gave up knitting. I am getting older and I need more free time.

Then, last night I thought perhaps I could limit myself to three-ply yarn and children’s knits.

Can you blame me?
