An old shack – along an old country road
Apparently this did not post last night….I’m not sure why….but her it is. Yesterday’s photo, today!
I recently heard someone say….”Crepe Myrtles are a good enough reason to live in Texas.”
I thought that had a ring of truth. Having grown up in the North I was not familiar with crepe myrtles. They are such a beautiful tree and they add so much color to an area that can be quite brown during the summer.
I don’t have a crepe myrtle in my yard….but I plan to plant one (or more) this Fall.
Have I mentioned lately that it has been raining in Texas? Maybe I whined about it more than mentioned it!
Anyway….This is NOT a lake. This is a field covered with water.
These are a few of the cows that are supposed to be grazing in this field.
They say the rain is supposed to stop. No more rain for at least a week. It is past time for the rain to stop. People have lost lives, homes, pets and cars. The rain has done its damage in Texas.
People in Texas are truly stunned. We rarely worry about rain ruining an outing or activity. Lately everything has hinged on the rain. Hopefully the predictions are right and we will have an opportunity to dry out a bit during this upcoming week.
The Texas flag.
Flying over a field of hay.
Before moving to Texas, a state flag was something you learned in school. I don’t remember anyone flying the flag of Ohio on their house or in their yard. I remember it standing in a corner of the cafeteria in elementary school but I don’t remember it flying in my neighborhood.
In Texas the state flag is part of the culture. It flies along side the American flag. It is raised at every possible event. It is sold as a souvenir. There are even clothes made from this flag.
I noticed this particular flag a few weeks ago while driving south on I35. I’m not sure if the photo does it justice….but this flag is huge.
Its like the tree grew just to provide shade for the picnic table!!
Narrow, winding road with a canopy of trees. The Guadalupe River flows nearby. After miles of twists and turns, an American flag is found hanging from the trees – nice.
