Earlier today I was driving to a client’s house and saw this guy.
If I were driving through the countryside I would not have been surprised. But I was in the suburbs. This is life in Texas!
Its that time of year…the Grackles are gathering.
I love watching them
So of course I stopped and took pictures
Today I spent my lunch hour at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens

Last March I posted several pictures of my Texas Red Bud Tree. The tree was full of beautiful pink blooms.

The rest of the summer the tree stood proudly and showed off its lovely green leaves.
But now it is time for the leaves to fall away…so the tree will stand bare until next spring when the cycle begins again.
I find it interesting that I did not find the tree intriguing enough to take pictures when it was full of leaves.
Trees are such a representation of life….when things are drastically different (beginning of life – end of life) we pay attention. But when things are OK, not crazy, not new, not dying we tend to not pay much attention.
I noticed this guy outside our local Walmart Neighborhood Market.
At first I just thought he was cute.
Then he bent over and pointed at me and I laughed out loud!!
Yes…I’m a bit odd that way!
