Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Fall

Fall has pried open Summer's oven door and blown some cool air our way. It is a nice reprieve from the hottest summer on record. A couple of freezes is all that it's taken to tell the trees to get undressed and ready for bed.

A river runs through it. Bald cypress getting ready to shed their needles.

Tranquility Park.

Pistache  tree.


Spanish Oak.

We are still in desperate need of rain. It's looks like winter is going to be dry. Which means that come spring what trees have survived will be under even  more stress. We are in need of over a foot of the wet stuff just to catch up to normal levels, but that alone isn't enough to bring back lake and river levels to where they need to be. Pray for rain for Texas.

  2. Love your photos and love your blog. I know I'll enjoy following it. The weather has been weird everywhere. I don't know how anyone can question climate change.
