BK and I were in Texas last week. It wasn’t a vacation, but the climate was a nice change from what we were used to. Here are some pictures, to give you an idea of the differences.
Went for a walk the next day, along Mud Creek.
Juniper grows in Illinois, too, but not like this. Made me want to find a bathtub and start making gin.
I grow pansies in cool weather, too. These Texas pansies look just like the ones in front of my house, only they aren’t covered by 2 feet of snow.
My daffodils will look like this in 6 weeks. If I’m lucky.
Supposedly while we were gone, temperatures rose to the 40s, with torrential rain. We thought we’d come back to less snow than this. Still, it was nice to sleep in our own bed again.
