Nature photography in Texas

This is one of my favorite photos…

Wildflowers in a Texas meadow, with the yellow composite forced into a curve by the entanglements of its neighboring purple vetch.

What caption would you give it?

Until next time…

Cold weather comfort food

The cold weather is moving, but that does not mean it’s going away. It’s time for some cold weather comfort food.

This has been a favorite of our family for years: Pag Bracken’s Stay-abed-stew:

It’s cold out there!

Winter has arrived and with it, the cold. Yesterday afternoon the temperature dropped over ten degrees in an hour. My sixteen-month-old grandson got his first jacket since, for the next few days at least, his usual hooded sweatshirt will not be sufficient. My husband pulled out his leather jacket and the grocery store was full of patrons wearing calf high boots, stocking caps and knitted scarves. I stuck to a long-sleeved turtle-neck beneath a sweatshirt. It was not a wise decision. My blood isn’t Nebraska thick anymore!!

The photograph is near where we used to live in Nebraska. We have no snow where I live today, but I remember it well!

So wherever you are, I wish you warmth, both inside and out.

Until next time…”
