everythings better with bluebonnet on it...

Had one of those executive decision mornings - time for a supply run to Alpine. Before I hit the road, Benita was in for breakfast at 7AM. She just figured out this morning that it is OK for her to let me scratch her ears like last fall. Left the Field Lab in good hands and ran my errands in the big city. Just as I was coming home around 3PM...I passed a car on my dirt road. They pulled up just as I was unpacking my stuff. New friends Denise and Charlie Martin got here just in time for the full tour. Grabbed this shot late this afternoon about 10 miles south of me to show off the other sign of Spring in SW Texas. 56,79,29,0

Good shot of the Bluebonnet. Also a good photo of your neighbors. It is funny of Benita showing up wanting to be feed.

Bluebonnet.
Benita hanging out.
Nice guests.
If it's not spring, it's at least shaping up to be a great Sunday.

Officially Spring or not I sure hope the lousy cold weather is over!

There's just something about seeing bluebonnets that lifts the spirits.
I think the cold weather is not quite done with us yet.

The way I like to tell if spring is here in the Central Tx area is the number of dead skunks at the side of the county roads. Seems like they know when it will get warmer. But, they don't know how to get out of the way of cars. More skunks, the more sure I am that spring is here.

Beautiful. Hummingbirds should arrive in 2 weeks. Are you going to put up feeders?

Happy Valentines Day to John, Benita, and everyone from us in Vancouver, BC, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics!

Hey John,
Denise and I just got back home to Austin and wanted to thank you for the great visit. Look forward to seeing you when we come back out to our place in the Spring...Charley and Denise
