Doot, Doot, Do, Lookin' Out My Back Door

Dinner's over, the kitchen's clean, the Hub's ensconced in front of the tv, and I'm on my second glass of wine. What better time to share some recent pics of our back yard?

Spring in the Texas hill country means bluebonnets. After a winter such as we just had, it means fields of them! (For the legend of bluebonnets, look here.)
This is the view from my bathroom window (taken outside, but from that vantage point).
Max doesn't care so much about the flowers, but he loves being out in the early a.m. Here, he and I are waiting outside for the Hub to wake up and our day to begin. (Max also loves the row of boulders.)
This is the view from the master bedroom window. (See note above. Remember, the Hub's still sleeping!)
Another shot of Max and his boulders with a bluebonnet backdrop.
There's a vacant lot between our house and the golf course. It's filled with bluebonnets this year!
Max and his rocks, redux.
Ditto, yet again.

This final pic is not one I took but rather one I intend to take--next week, I'm hoping. Not sure when this was shot, but it can't be this year; the bluebonnets haven't filled the field yet. But they will, and I'm watching. (It's an abandoned farmhouse on the outskirts of Marble Falls, the next town over from us. Lovely, innit? Doesn't it make your storyteller minds start to weave fantasies?)
That's all I have for y'all right now. Happy spring, wherever you are!

Since I was born in Texas and lived there for quite a while, I love the bluebonnets and the Hill country. These pictures are just stunning. Wish I was there. Hugs, Marty

That farmhouse is so pretty - I can't imagine why anyone would abandon it. My mind immediately goes to what I would do to remodel it.

But the field of bluebonnets is perfect.
