My Little Friend in Brenham

Recently, we were able to travel to an area that was new to us…Brenham, Texas.  It’s about an hour east of Austin.  Such beautiful countryside.  It was Bluebonnet season and I was snapping lots of photos of the flowers in bloom.

I fell in love with the sweet little fellow.  He was curious and came closer when I took his picture.

Spring in My Little World

Spring is busting out all over in our little corner of the world. Enjoying the beauty of our Redbud…as are the bees.

Upside Down

Something I’ve been wanting to try is photography using a crystal ball to capture images.

Still learning to use this tool and I have lots to learn.
The crystal ball picks up the reflections of everything in range.

So far…I like it.

 

Conservatory In Black & White

On our recent road trip, Chris and I went to Minnesota to have my mother’s ashes laid to rest with her parents.  Something long overdue since she had passed away back in 2008.  

The day before the ceremony at Fort Snelling, we had a few hours and went to the Como Park Zoo & Conservatory.  It was a beautiful day and we had some time to relax.

As we walked around the gardens and zoo, I wondered did my mother or grandparent come here.  It was not too far from the home they lived in in St Paul, MN.  

Pismo Beach

Boy, oh boy, I’d love to be there on a hot summer day like today.

This picture was taken back in 2011, on our first trip up the coast headed to Back Bay Inn in Los Osos. This is Pismo Beach. Doesn’t the water look cool and refreshing?

Roses in Springtime

Shortly before we moved from California in 2014, my husband Chris took me to the Huntington Library. I had never been there, but he had some good memories going there when he was young.

The gardens at the Huntington Library were truly among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, especially the roses.
