I’m in Texas waiting for the birth of a granddaughter. My daughter and SIL live in the Texas Hill Country and this is some of what I see on my walks in the early morning and evening.This is the road to the kids’ house.I saw three of these when I turned out of the driveway early this morning and at first I thought it wouldn’t be a very long walk. They eventually meandered through the fence. Lots of deer in the area. I don’t know what this bird is but it has a distinctive long tail. I need to google “bird with long tail in Texas hill country”. At Katie’s bird feeder there are a lot of cardinals and a very colorful painted bunting.
I want to look this plant up also. It was full of butterflies and some giant bees the last time I walked by. MamaLu cooling off after a walk when Katie went with me. View from the kid’s kitchen window. This is a Black Buck, native to Africa. There is a herd in the area. What do you do when the baby is a week overdue? Let’s go wash the horses. Libby is the horse that Katie got when she was in junior high. Libby moved with Katie to Cal Poly, to TX, to VT, and back to TX. Libby is not too crazy about baths, but her companion, Slim, loves the hose. View through the oak trees. Views from this morning’s walk before going to the hospital where we are waiting for a baby.
