Inside Looking Out

Fun how the reflections make it look like she's outside. Shot with iPhone.

I can't seem to be out shooting very long without getting a bird pic or two!

This great blue heron was just hanging out in the flood-swollen Llano River above Lake LBJ. When I got a little too close, he took off in flight. Just love the way they are able to pull their necks in when they fly.

My One-Day Texas Hill Country Retreat & Photos

Monday Eloise had a meeting in Austin, so while she was meeting, I was driving through the Hill Country soaking in the beauty of the wild flowers, and of course taking a few photos. Hope you enjoy!

Multitasking makes you look funny too!

Lot's of stuff written about the negative effects of multitasking. Here's grandson Ben, trying to stuff goodies in plastic eggs but not wanting to give up working on his stick candy. We all multitask to some extent, even without thinking about it. Sometimes it makes us look funny. Sometimes we don't achieve optimum results. But it's natural and normal at least to some extent. But just wondering -- how funny do you look to others when you're multitasking?

Pear Tree Blossoms: Beauty in the Details

The Bartlett Pear trees are in bloom in Houston, hugh white balls of white adorning the streets and even shopping center parking lots. It's the sure sign that Spring has arrived, and it quickens the heart.

Like most flowers, however, the beauty up close is even more spectacular. The pear blossoms are tiny, translucent, and so very fragile. I hope you enjoy this photo from this morning in our back yard.
