Spanish Moss

My husband found some Spanish Moss a couple of years ago.  He hung it on this metal bracket at our apartment.  It is still there and it is growing.  I did not know moss could grow anywhere but on a tree.

The Day after St. Patrick's Day 2010

The day after St. Patrick's Day is a beautiful spring day.  I went out with my camera to take some pictures.  Over the next few weeks I will be documenting the growth of the bluebonnets on the property.

 This is some of the bluebonnets poking thru the leaves.

The quality of the light at about 6:15 pm today was amazing, as you can see in this picture off my deck.

This was taken in the back yard toward the end of the lake.

The Azaleas are coming into bloom.

The Camillas are just starting to bloom.
In other words, Spring has truly sprung in
Porter, TX.

Spring Forward!

Tonight is the night we lose an hour. (Spring Forward) It means Spring is here.  My son, William and I drove to Galveston today.  It was a gorgeous day.  We walked on the beach.
We walked down a jetty.

We went to Moody Gardens.  We took a trip on the Colonel.
 We looked at the exhibits.  And William went Ice Skating on the outdoor rink in March in Texas on the coast.

We saw the penguins and the fish.

Spring -- A Very Long Time Coming.

I was in the grocery store today.  In the floral section, there were hyacinths.  The smell was heavenly.  I am so looking forward to Spring.  The weather here in Texas has be unusually cool for this time of year.  I am looking forward to Dogwoods, Redbuds, Bluebonnets, and SUNSHINE.  It can not come too soon.
