"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


she walked through springtime

"We tend our garden, we set the sun
This is the only place on earth bluebonnets grow
And once a year they come and go
At this old house here by the road.
"And when we die we say we'll catch some blackbird's wing
And we will fly away to heaven
Come some sweet bluebonnet spring."
-Nanci Griffith, James Hooker, & Daniel Flowers, "Gulf Coast Highway"

Photo taken yesterday along Highway 71, just east of La Grange. It seems too early, but our lovely wildflowers are already carpeting the edges of highways throughout central Texas.
