The photos in this post were taken on a walk this evening around the outside of my subdivision. I’m grateful that, while I live in a subdivision where you can almost touch your neighbor’s house standing inside your own, I only have to walk a few minutes to see plenty of wildflowers.
In the neighborhood park, the caretakers mow around the patches of bluebonnets and primrose, leaving them to blow in the central Texas winds. The road leading into the subdivision is very rural, lined with trees, wild grasses, flowers and chirping birds. Darn dog Chloe likes it because there’s also an occasional rodent (or maybe reptile) scurrying or slinking through the tall grasses. If she wasn’t on a leash, it would take me hours to catch her!
