New Years Eve

It's midnight somewhere! 
May the best of the old
and the promise of the new
both be yours in the New Year.

Cactus spires

Cactus spires aspire to the heights.  These looked architectural to me. So I post this in honor of my grandson who likes tall buildings.  Let us all aspire to greater things in the New Year to come!

Merry Christmas!

One fall day I found a whole bed of hibiscus flowering in a garden off of Speer Boulevard and shot several angles.  In this one I liked the pleated look of the newly opening bud and the mostly the red color of the flower and the green of the stem. 
Everyone have a Good Holiday Season!

Red and Green

Christmas colors red and green in the prickly pear tunas and plant. We are in a mild stretch of weather again.  Makes getting out and about much easier on the body!

Baby it's cold outside!

It was minus -15 last night and my older house didn't like it one bit.  I had water leaking down the basement wall at 2:30 am.  Fortunately the shutoff valve worked. We have lived here a long time and never had this kind of problem before, but just like us the house is getting older!  Oh, Well,  thought the milkweed seeds above looked sort of cold.  Can take snow pictures now as well since we got almost 5 inches yesterday.  It was so cold that the snow was light and fluffy, easy to just brush away with a broom.
