Here is a picture my sister took, near her home out near Dallas.
Great photos. Beautiful country.
We're expecting snow on Tuesday
Before I moved to Texas, I thought wildflowers like that were just made up in picture books.
We're still a few weeks away from flowers like that. But they'll get here too eventually

snow covered this morning in central Kansas.
glad I didn't plant tomatoes yet...
We had a pretty mild winter and the bluebells are out in force, (and the kestrels).
The ones in my garden are more mauve.
As i've gone around the neighborhood with the little dogs this last week, i've seen how badly the trees and shrubs were affected by the December ice storm and the ensuing months of sub-zero temperatures. The trees were not simply damaged by the ice storm, but are now not budding as they normally would. There will be skimpy foliage on the trees and shrubs in the seasons to come.
I've always enjoyed driving along Texas highways this time of year. We're a few weeks away in Washington. But the Tulips are out in the Skagit valley:
around here the Hindu community of Pa was celebrating Holi this past eek. (Our winter was so bd that the holiday was declared "Postponed" until the weather was more accommodating.
These guys are the original "party animals".
