Las Vegas

2015-06-22 20.16.04I just got back from a visit to Vegas visiting my mom and brother who live there. It sure is hot in the desert. 110 degrees hot. With all the rain Dallas has received lately, I was used to seeing green everywhere. Not in Vegas. Brown is the color most viewed.

But, my brother likes to always keep in the holiday spirit no matter the temperature. Don’t you love his lighted palm tree? I do. Enjoy.

The Smell of Spring

My favorite tree is blooming. It must be spring. I can smell the tiny blossoms’ sweet perfume in the air. I know they’re not a desired tree, but I love the scent of the Chinaberry above all other flowers’ scent. We don’t have a Chinaberry tree on our property, but there is one on a quiet street that I drive on my daily commute. Yesterday, I stopped the car and broke off a couple of the blooming low hanging branches. Don’t tell anyone. Those branches are in a vase here in my studio making every breath I take a delight. Here’s some studio shots of those tiny perfumed blossoms. Enjoy.

Trying to be Spring

The weather here in Dallas is just as wacky as the rest of the country: hot one day, chilly the next. But some of the plants and trees in my backyard feel that spring is upon us and are showing their colors just to prove it. Here’s a couple of photos I shot yesterday of my rosemary bush and  redbud tree both showing their own shades of purple. Glad to see it. The yard always looks better with some purple blooming. Enjoy.

It’s Finally Fall

Fall has arrived in Dallas. Finally the weather matches the season. A rarity for this part of the country. I spent most of the weekend indoors in my studio making critter pillows, but I did go outside and take pictures of the trees next to the house and their leaves of changing colors. Enjoy.

Crape Myrtle Dreams

We have four crepe myrtle trees that came with the house when we bought it. The heat right now is miserable in Dallas, but the crape myrtles bask in the sun and emit hot hot pink rays of joy right to your face. Yes it’s hot, they seem to say, but look how pretty I am. How can I argue that?
