Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring have showed up in our part of the Texas Hill Country. Seems a good way to let you know I'm still moving and breathing.

My schedule has taken a drastic change and of course there are many long--as well as a few short--stories about me and my old Buick darting around town at strange hours these days. But that is for another blog.

I had to dig deeply into my Joy Reservoir to handle being dressed AND out and about town at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

The sights were amazing!

To begin, on a chilly February evening, our Texas sky warned: GET READY!!

Sleet arrived the next morning. Well.... yes, thin and scattered BUT it was wet, it was cold, it was frozen WATER.
We gave thanks.

Then as I moved about town, I discovered the pansieshad arrived. Their cute faces lined sidewalks, decorated forlorn gardens, and hung from porches.

In December this neighborhood Christmas Tree shimmered with lights.
In March, the Christmas Tree stands regal in front of the Pear tree that held tight to its blooms.
Spring WILL come.

On a dreary morning, white blossoms shimmer on a tree standing on a street corner
in downtown Fredericksburg and screams:

Lavender flowers on the wild Mountain Laurrel growing out of rock wave to me as I head home on dreary, March mornings remind me that the Ressurrection is real.

I have been amazed and delighted and thankful for the beauty God planted along my path.

I'm so glad I chose to look up.

Check back to enjoy more sights around Fredericksburg!

Love and Blessings,

P.S. Seems I need a lesson on inserting photographs. *sigh* hope you enjoy anyway,
