Butterflies and Sycamore Trees ... a Walk by the River

our friends took us to one of their favorite spots, 
a path along a river that runs a short distance from their home near Houston. 

They were disappointed because the river was up from recent rains, 
preventing us from following their normal route.

I wasn't disappointed at all. 
Take my hand and I'll show you what my drought-weary butterfly-and-wildflower-starved eyes beheld...

Watch out for poison ivy!

This butterfly kept posing... I kept snapping.


It came in November, but I finally got my Spring!


  1. i know exactly how you're feeling! soak it in! these are wonderful! :)

  2. Oh, Barbara! You got some beautiful shots. It's so strange how some are complaining of too much rain and we have too little. The weather patterns are a little out of kilter everywhere it seems. Enjoyed the photo tour!

  3. Until I ready your last line, I had my comment all ready to type as I scrolled down through your beautiful images. I was going to say that it's like having spring and autumn at the same time. Then you pretty much said it for me. Great shots, one and all.

  4. Nice articles. I'm just blogwalking and very happy to stop here. And also give you some comment here.

    Dont forget to give us some your comment into my blog too.

    Thanks for share,

  7. Hurray for luscious lovely spring in autumn! All your shots are fabulous!

  8. I wish I had your skill and talent with a camera. My photos are only as good as photoshop can make them.

  9. Lovely photographs, Barbara! I agree with you. It seems we are having a November Spring this year. I have a few spring blooms around my yard! Maybe the crepe myrtles will bloom in December!?!
