Texas Bluebonnets

I have now fulfilled my yearly obligation as a Texan to take bluebonnet pictures in the spring.

Sorry, I have no small children or dogs to place among the blue bonnets. I have taken my share of children in the bluebonnet pictures in years past. Perhaps I should have rounded up some of the grandchildren.

The wildflowers are truly going wild along the Texas roadways this year!

Which Buttons???

Here is my first ever Baby Surprise Jacket. My dilemma is I don’t want to go shopping for buttons.
These are the closest matches I have. I would really like grey but don’t have any on hand.. So pink or purple it is.

Friends With Yarn

I was in Dallas last week visiting my knitter friend. She was cleaning her stash and brought me a bag of yarn.

I am starting a summer tee with this cotton-acrylic blend. The colors are very “me”.

Hammie Habitat

My old computer died a slow and painful death. I am slowly getting acquainted with the new one, including playing with the camera and photo capabilities.

I had fun with the special effects as you can see in this photo of my hammies house:

Spring Fever

I looked out my window and what did I see? The first flowers of spring looking at me.

(apologies to the true poets out there)

Snow at the Lake

 

 

I know my Colorado family is laughing, but look at our snow!

It almost covers the leaves :-)
