Brought to you by the letter (L)

Welcome to my stop on my friend Piper’s awesome Alphabet Walk Blog Hop!

I picked “L” for my letter — for “Lisa”, of course — and planned a lovely stroll holding hands with J while drinking ice cold lemonade. Or limeade! But life got in the way and I ended up going around my neighborhood all by my lonesome.  I was in a bit of a panic — what would I find with “L”? A ladybug? A leaf?


Turns out I didn’t have to worry!

First I spotted this pretty Leucophyllum — or Texas barometer bush, for those of you who aren’t plant nerds like me.


Then there was….


ha ha ha!  (and I picked up that cup on my way back home and recycled it — good karma all around!)

I had hoped to find some of these guys


I *like* lichens.  (Told ya, I’m a plant nerd.  Although, lichens are not really plants.  Actually, they’re not animals either. :)

There were lots of these on my walk, but only two were accompanied by clouds that had the same shape as the arc!


Next I came across this little scene.


The letterbox part is obvious, but why the “Lance”?  For Lance Armstrong — who used to ride for the US Postal cycling team. If you live in Austin, TX, you have to root for Lance when he’s riding le Tour de France. It’s the law.  Well not really.  This is his 13th Tour and it’s not a very lucky one. Allez Lance!  Viva le Tour!

Speaking of Austin, TX — how about some Texas inspired photos?


The end.  :)

Hope you liked hopping along with me! And!  You just gotta check out the rest of the blogs on the hop — there are some amazing photos. Many thanks to Piper for hosting the hop and giving me a reason to take my camera for a walk.

Oh and if you are wondering where the neat-o paper medallions came from, they were created by the mega talented Katrina of Pugly Pixel. I just love them!

Have a lucky, lyrical, lively day that’s loaded with love, laughter, and limeade (or lemonade!),

    Liked the letter ” L” tour since my last name begins with same! We played a game with the kids when we traveled, mostly in the car. They had to find things beginning with the first letter of their name.  It was fun!!!!

  10. How fun!  This totally put a smile on my face.  And I have a little nerd treat for you: Alice the algae and Freddie the “fun-guy” took a “like-in” to each other and now their love is on the rocks :)

    1. JILL!!! That was too funny!!! Hee hee!
