MY SHARING NEIGHBOR!


My neighbor called to ask if I would like 
to come take pictures of her 
PINK HIBISCUS

before they hurriedly came and went! 
I hurriedly came,  and well...here we are!

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE

This huge flag hung in the San Angelo, Texas, Hobby Lobby Parking Lot; I've not noticed it for some period of time   . . . I wonder . . .

RAIN LILIES!


For me, seeing rain lilies is comparable to finding a surprise package in my mailbox! The roadside of one of our busy streets had lovely group and individual displays of them this morning as we headed off to fulfill a time commitment. I was "chompin' at the bit", knowing the likelihood of their still being there when we returned was unlikely because they have the peculiar habit of coming up the morning after a rain (or, I've noticed following a good water-sprinkling over our library yard), then generally they disappear, challenging you to find where they stood regally a short time before! Perhaps that's why I like them so much: not only do they surprise me when they arrive, but in their also surprising me when they go, it's with a promise they'll surprise me again another morning! Though it was quite windy, obviously I did get pictures this morning!




P.S. More info is available regarding Rain Lilies by "googling"; one such site is:   http://texashighways.com/txtop40/item/4450-rain-lily

BEAUTY ON THE WAY

What beauty I saw as I entered the hospital 
parking lot on my way to visit John yesterday!

RAINDROPS ON . . .

Following a brief rain shower, my cellphone and I were busy on our way home from getting the mail.
