Peace After The Storm

Earlier in the evening, we had a thunderstorm coming through North Texas. After lots of lightning and rumbling, the Sun came back out. It was so peaceful. With plenty of day light left, this gave me the opportunity to capture several photos, before the sun was below the horizon.

Flower Friday (4)

Common Sunflowers on the Texas Blackland Prairie

Due to our vacation in the Pacific Northwest, the Paul McCartney concert, and Sara’s dance recital, I took a little break from “Flower Friday”. But now, we are back to normal. And I’ll post photos of beautiful garden flowers and wildflowers each Friday again. Enjoy! 😉

Sunflowers & Poblano Peppers

Our sunflowers started to bloom, earlier this week. Now, one after the other pops up. Later in the Summer or early Autumn, the birds can reap what they have sown. Meanwhile, the poblano peppers begin to grow. Soon, I can make guacamole from garden fresh tomatoes, poblano, onions, and cilantro. Can I ask for more? 😉

First Cucumber of 2019

The cucumber plant took its sweet time, but we have one fruit growing in the garden. The birds did their magic by planting sunflowers around it. I hope, we will get more cucumbers throughout the Summer, since they can climb up the sunflowers, which will also add some sweetness to the fruits.
