Hiking In The Arbor Hills Nature Preserve In April 2019

Sunset in the forested area of Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano, Texas

As I mentioned in the previous blog, Kevin, Katelynn, Sara and I went to the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano yesterday evening. While Kevin was running the trails, the girls and I took pictures of the gorgeous Texas Bluebonnet, and we hiked to the frog pond towards the center of the park. Unfortunately, it is too early for Bull Frog sightings. And the edges of the pond were covered in algae. So we couldn’t see any tadpoles either. But that was okay. We still had a fun walk, which ended with hanging out at the playground for a little bit, while we were waiting for Kevin to be done working out at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.

Beautiful Spring Sunset In March

I love this time of the year. It gets warmer; the trees grow back their leaves; the garden starts to grow all kind of vegetables, herbs, and fruit plants; the wildlife gets ready for preparing the nurseries for their young ; and the girls can stay longer outside, because the sun sets much later.

Sunset & Cotton Clouds (2)

We had some storms coming through North Texas, this evening. While neighboring cities had up to softball-size hail, we’ve got some rain. Before the storm came in, I saw the clouds building up, right at sunset. After today’s high temperature of 81°F (27°C), the storm brought a cooler breeze with it. Now, we are in the low 70s (22°C). If feels fantastic outside.

Hiking Into The Texas Sunset In March

Yesterday evening was so nice and warm, Kevin, the girls and I walked along the creek behind our street. Sara wanted to go to the new bridge anyway. And Katelynn wanted to see, if she can find a fossil at the waters edge. What a nice opportunity to take the camera and capture Spring along the way.

After The Rain (2)

It rained in the early morning hours and all afternoon, today. But once the rain was gone, the clouds began to move out. And we’ve got rewarded with a colorful sunset. I can’t wait to see the Sun after three days of rain, again. It was too gloomy, the last few days.

Beautiful January Evening (2)

Beautiful skies, we had this afternoon. The wind was strong and brisk, but the Sun was warm. Friday suppose to be warm in the low 70s (21°C), before we drop into the low 20s (-6°C) on Sunday night. Kevin and I need to bring some potted plants, including the Meyer Lemon tree in the garage for a couple of nights. But in the meantime, we enjoy the warmer temperatures, before the Texas Winter comes back.

Beautiful January Winter Sunset (2)

This was a rough Sunday. My migraine started last night around 2 am, and I had to tough it out until this evening. I’m still not out of the woods. But I feel much better, than I was a couple of hours ago. The weather was beautiful, today. But I missed it all. I decided to go for some fresh air, on the front porch. The sun set already. But the afterglow still looked very beautiful. The rest of the evening, I’ll eat some fruits, turn on my essential oil diffuser, and take it easy. I hope, tomorrow will be a much better day.
