Flowers in her hair,
It’s amazing what a little rain can do out here in the dessert! It doesn’t mean we are out of the drought by any means. But it’s so nice to see green everywhere, and some colorful flowers, wild or not.
|An oasis or a mirage? A secret spot at the ranch!|
|The duck found it!|
|Blooming cactus...or cactus blooming!|
Until then, enjoy some pictures of spring. After a little moisture, that is!
|The Mesquite tree budding is the sign spring is really here.|
|Somewhere along the highway on the way to Austin.|
|Are they Poppies? I don't know.|
|This is what the flower looks like up close.|
|Yellow flowers on the highway.|
|Can you see the 'bug' on the flower? Don't know how I captured that!|
|Sunflower? Yellow Daisy? Black Eye Susan?|
|Another 'wild flower' or weed...depending on your perspective.|
|Trumpet vine on my deck. Blooming!|
|Bluebonnets on the highway by the house|
|They bloom even in the dessert. With a little water!|
|State flower of Texas!|
|They are a lot prettier in the Hill Country at my friend Beverly's house!|
|Not my picture. Picture taken on Mach Rd, on the Bluebonnet Trail near Ennis, TX by David and Eileen Ng|
|Even the ordinary weeds are viewed as wild flowers out here|
And all I had left was one little flower in my hand...
On the knitting front, I finished the Small Shawl. I think I keep calling it a Simple Shawl, but the pattern is really called Small Shawl. It is simple though! Just no-brainer garter stitch in a rayon boucle yarn, although any yarn will work. I think maybe I’ll start a crochet project next, just for something different.
|I like this as a scarf.|
|Shawl draped. Looks light and lacy. Look here for other creative ideas!|
|Thai Die. See what others are reading here.|
|Wow! Where did all this come from? DFW Fiberfest!|
|This is cheerful!|
|From two if by hand at the DFW Fiber Festival.|
I love the flower girl.
Was she reality or just a dream to me?
