Texas in the Spring, Continued...

(Apparently Blogger has been experiencing technical difficulties since yesterday and during that window of time lost more than 30 hours of posts. I'm reposting Wednesday's and Thursday's blogs today.)

As I mentioned in one of last week’s posts, spring comes “early” in Texas. I’d only just gotten used to seeing my breath, turning the heat on in the car, and wearing my Smart Wool socks again when warmer temperatures arrived and we transitioned suddenly to sunscreen, air conditioning, and tank tops.

So outside we went, in search of all things spring (you have to search quickly, because by weather/temperature standards, spring only lasts for about four days here).

Also mentioned previously was the trouble I had finding Bluebonnets to photograph. To fill the void I started scouring the neighborhood for something – anything – else spring-like to capture through the lens of my camera.

Now that the high temperatures have climbed into the 90’s I think it’s safe to say farewell to spring and hello to summer!
