Reading Tree

I love prairie flowers, and the way the change every few weeks. This composition was tricky with that one live oak tree, but what a lovely walk to such a beautiful reading spot. Spend a minute under that tree today when things get crazy.

Alamos Amarillos

If you are a Texan, as I am, “remember the Alamo” is taught to you from Kindergarten on.

Alamo is the Spanish word for Cottonwood. I prefer to remember these alamos rather than the bloody images of Santa Anna, James Bowie, William Travis, and Davy Crockett fighting it out the bitter end.
