Life Is A Grand Adventure, Go Live It



Oh my goodness, I have been in the great state of Texas since last Wednesday afternoon and to say I am having a great time is a definite understatement.  I grew up in Dallas, but left at the age of 20, way before my passion for photography and viewing my surroundings in a whole different manner was born.  Being back here and enjoying the sites and sounds around me once again is definitely a whole new and delightful experience.

I registered for a class sponsored by the Dallas Arboretum entitled "Photographing the Wildflowers of Texas" with a former photographer from Southern Living Magazine.  Wow, sign me up. No hesitation there.  So instead of a bunch of words, I am just going to show you the extreme beauty I have been surrounded by for the last few days.  I won't be leaving until Thursday evening to return home, so I still have a couple of days left to savor the sights.


One morning the fog was thick and created such wonderful images....





And then there is the animals....



And the flowers....oh my goodness, the flowers.





This morning we drove around an area that is filled, I mean filled with blooming bluebonnets. But without internet, yes, I am sitting in a coffee house creating this post, I did not have the time to download the 500 more images sitting on my camera.  So check my personal blog in the next week to see more of the beauties of the Texas Hill country.

Absolutely stunning Texas photos! Being a native Texan, I have to agree that we do have some pretty awesome sites! The fencing is just the right touch to these photos! Thanks for shaing, and enjoy your stay!

Oh, my gosh, what a feast for the eyes this post is! Spring was always my favorite time to visit my son in Dallas when he was living there. So many beautiful sights to see and you have captured them perfectly! Could I pick a favorite? No! But that cow standing in the field of Mexican Primrose comes pretty close!
