Wild Flowers after the Snow

After the Snow on Dec. 10, 2008 on Dec. 20, 2008 I went out to the wild flower garden in the yard and was amazed at what I found. Here are some pics. I wonder what it will be like in the spring. In East Texas you never know what you will find in the yard.

Buddy Then and Now

I just found a couple of pictures of my
dog Buddy.
The first one I just took recently.
He doesn't seem to happy to have his picture taken.

This one I took when we first got Buddy.
He is just a puppy.

Both of this pictures show his superior attitude. He really is a sweety.

More Late Bloomers

Just recently the Crepe Myrtle next to our parking place
finally bloomed. It was very green but never
seemed to bloom it is actually white.

Tom and I are doing well. We are looking forward to some rain from Hurricane Dolly. Fortunately that is all we are getting from this storm -- a little wind and a good deal of rain. Hope all is well with everyone.

More later!!

Late Bloomers

Bluebonnet in Bloom

Yesterday I was out in the yard walking around. I stopped by the wildflower garden. We had planted some Texas Bluebonnets. They did not bloom while the others bloomed. We assumed that they had been planted too late. I guess we were wrong. Here is a picture of the bluebonnet I found blooming along with a couple of other flowers.

Late July 4, 2008 Afternoon

Late in the afternoon on July 4, 2008, I took this picture off my back deck. The water in the lake was mirror smooth.

We have a small wildflower garden in yard. Some yellow flowers are really blooming right now.

They are really quite lovely.
