The vacation was followed by a birthday, then two days of work, and Bernie flew to San Diego on Tuesday and Jeff flew to San Antonio on Tuesday and Laura on Tuesday decided to fly to Paris and Sweden next week.
Well, what can I say.
You know how many times I walk the woods alone?
You can't imagine how many times I have walked and wished I had a friend with me to ohh and ahh at what is there to see.
Gail really, really liked the cypress trees. The cypress knees, and the feathery new growth delighted her.
"Everything is so green here!" she kept saying.
(Colorado Springs had gotten two inches of snow and was still snowing when she left.)
It was a great walk, capped by something new, as usual:
Yellow iris were blooming in the forest!
How cool is that!
And Gail didn't even mind the three snakes that were sunning themselves on the path.
(I hadn't told her there might be snakes....)
Last night we had a major thunderstorm, so sever it knocked out power.
Gail slept through it. Go figure.
Today it is starting to clear up, and we are heading out to find the bluebonnet fields.
I think we're going to have some serious fun.
Stay tuned tomorrow for pictures!
