A Quick Getaway

My mom told me to leave town.

She didn't have to tell me twice.

Being the respectful and obedient daughter I am, I left the kids with her, grabbed my husband, and...skipped town.

Here's a close up glimpse of what we were able to soak in while we were away.

Further away

Left to right, top to bottom:

Prickly pear flower
Prickly pear cactus
Longhorn door knocker
River near cottage
Our dwelling place
Gnarly Cypress roots
Goodnight, Sun

More glimpses...

From our abode

Flowery yet prickly

Thought this was outlawed long ago? Not in Texas.



; )

Okay, maybe not what you thought.

Our view while we ate our vittles in town.

Thanks, Mom (a.k.a. Gramma), for chasing us out of town!

What cool and creative collages, Laura! I see your new camera is working well. Good for you for being able to get away with your man! :)

Laura- these collages are beautiful! You should have one printed out and framed!
