Stress relief.

Hi everyone, how is your week so far?  Mine is crazy busy!  But I just took a break and downloaded photos taken at the Wildflower Center. Ahhhhh, I feel much better. Come along and join me in some stress relief, starting with our famous Texas bluebonnets.  Sure wish you could smell them, there’s nothing like it.


A crossvine aglow in the afternoon sun…


Pretty yellow buttercups — what could be happier?


And last but not least, a columbine  with a background of spiderworts.  This little scene quite took my breath away — reminded me of a living watercolor.


Okay then, inhale…exhale…
