Texas Color

November 18, 2014


This past Saturday I decided to mow and bag leaves in the yard.  I worked in the yard a couple of hours and got it ship-shape.  It looked really nice.  Just as I finished, snow flurries filled the air.  Before long we had a couple of inches of snow  plus wind chills around zero!  Brrrrrr!

I know, I know… I live in Iowa so what do you expect??  But it doesn’t seem right to mow, bag leaves and shovel snow all on the same day.  Ugh.


So, I am revisiting Texas (we were there in October) with these photos.  We will have flowers and all of this color in Iowa… sometime next April.  🙂

    Beautiful and glorious photographs. No snow here, just a gray mist hanging in the air. The flowers are still in bloom. Hugs!

    Beautiful photos Brad. I completely understand about not wanting to mow for the “last time”. I love the seasons in the Midwest, I could just do without the long winters here in Wisconsin. Texas is a perfect place for an escape.

      Thanks for your kind comments. I suppose your winters are even worse. Nothing like the bright colors of nature to make our day a little better. Again, thanks for taking time to comment.

        I am lucky to drive for a living, so I get to experience 2 falls and 2 springs and summer is always close by. We miss most of the winter in WI because we are gone all the time.

    Beautiful photos Brad. I wouldn’t mind a little bit of that snow today. We are still in the 80’s but word is a cold front is on the way. Have a lovely day!

      Thanks for the comment. I need to get back to posting… By the way, we just got 6 inches of snow. Hopefully, it will be gone by Thanksgiving.

    Love the details on these. It’s always harder than it looks to capture the vibrancy of these beautiful flowers. Happy to have found you.
