flowers, anyway

Seems that most of Texas is closed for Easter Monday (who knew that was a thing outside of Europe?), so the excursion to the Wildflower Center has been postponed.  However, it is far too gorgeous a day to NOT be outdoors, so I hit the trail closest to my home. 

Hard to tell, but this is the teeniest turtle I've seen this spring~about the size of a cell phone.

I wish that blogs came with sensory interactions so that you could hear the buzzing bees and smell the pollen(!) and feel the lake breeze.

I've found myself stopping a lot lately and simply staring at the brightness and the details of new leaves.

Bluebonnets are still going strong.

Even the cacti are getting into this Spring thing.


  1. Except for the fact that it's eleventy-million degrees there, I really wanted to see Death Valley covered in flowers this year. The cacti are kind of killing me with their blooming - it's kind of exciting!

  2. I know that it's not possible, but somehow this spring seems greener & bloomier than usual.
