Planting food and flowers for Earth Day

Every Monday, I encourage you to notice the beauty around you. Most of the beauty I see is in nature, I am a country girl after all. Earth day is the one day a year that everyone is encouraged to do something to preserve this beauty. You could ditch prepackaged bottles and get a reusable […]

Texas Bluebonnet

It’s that time of year again. Bluebonnet season. As a Texan, I have a love/hate relationship with this beautiful flower. First, a little about this flower.

This photo was taken by me while I was sitting in traffic. We had been at a dead stop for 20 minutes! I found myself getting more tense with each tick of the clock. I had places to go and things to do! Why weren’t we at least moving a little?!? The sun was glaring […]
