Seen at a Spring Branch garden shop. Looks like a cross between a blanket flower and a coneflower.
We got some Fredericksburg peaches over the weekend and they all came ripe today. Delicious!
Glass flamingos catching the light at our local garden center.
An abandoned house seen in Capulin, NM. A big sky and wide open spaces.
I have so many questions about this jar of pickles. But it’s probably better if I don’t know. Seen at the Capulin General Store in Capulin, NM.
This photo was taken on May 15 – the night of the eclipse. You can’t really see the eclipse in this picture but I do think it’s a pretty image. Seen near Lake Haviland, north of Durango, CO.
Seen at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens.
Seen in Fort Stockton, TX. Possibly the only pretty thing in Fort Stockton!
Heaven It will be the past and we’ll live there together. Not as it was to live But as it is remembered. It will be the past. We’ll all go back together. Everyone we ever loved, and lost, and must remember. It will be the past. And it will last forever. ~ Patrick Phillips
For the Bird Singing before Dawn Poem by Kim Stafford Some people presume to be hopeful when there is no evidence for hope, to be happy when there is no cause. Let me say now, I’m with them. In deep darkness on a cold twig in a dangerous world, one first little fluff lets out a peep, a warble, a song—and in a little while, behold: the first glimmer comes, then a glow filters through the misty trees, then the bold sun rises, then everyone starts bustling about. And that first crazy optimist, can we forgive her for thinking, dawn by dawn, “Hey, I made that happen! And oh, life is so fine.”
