If you live in Texas, you've grown accustomed to the word "drought" over the last year or so. Apparently we're in a 10 - 15 year cycle and aren't expecting it to get any better for awhile. I don't know who these experts are and how accurate their predictions may be but judging from my dead front yard, I tend to believe it. I'm not sure but I don't think it has much to do with climate change but who knows... and according to that moron, Rick Santorum, climate change is a myth anyway. And I'm sure he's done a lot of research on the subject. But don't get me started on that nimrod.
Anyway, despite the drought, we've had a pretty good crop of bluebonnets this year. These photos were taken in Temple, Texas which hasn't had much to show in years past. I didn't make it to Brenham/Chappell HIll to see the good stuff so these will have to do.
And here's a paper bag book I did several years ago. You can click on the titles to go to the blog posts describing each page or section. I'm still being a deadbeat so this is sort of like a rerun. However, don't think for a minute that I've been lounging around eating bon bons. Hardly! I've been working out in the yard trying to take advantage of the cool days so that when the temps rise, I'll be happily inside enjoying the view. While eating bon bons. Or more likely, Pretzel M & M's. I wouldn't know a bon bon if it bit me in the butt.
