on the road again

"Goin' places that I've never been / Seein' things that I may never see again…" Down in Texas for a work trip, somewhere on the road between San Antonio and Houston with Willie Nelson running through my head.

The wildflowers are spectacular this year. Even the locals say they have never seen anything quite like it. The bluebonnets have mostly passed, but the fields are full of Indian blanket, primrose, poppy, and Texas paintbrush. It is the sort of scene that makes you want to weep it is so beautiful.

Janet, these are gorgeous photos, I am inserting a Monet figure into the poppy field. Taking culture on the road to Texas is a patriotic exercise and for that I thank you.pgt

mom ~ they say that it is something Texans haven't seen in generations...so I think even those in Texas dream of it!

little a ~ I thought exactly the same thing. I had to keep reminding myself that I was Texas! So much culture in that state. Just amazing.
