It seemed like August barely arrived before it was leaving again,
blowing past me while I was busy getting acquainted with the real estate business.
I still made time for quite a few morning walks with my camera.
Here are a few of my favorites from the past couple of weeks...
One of these days I'll find the name of these.
They're tiny and easy to ignore, but are so photogenic, aren't they?
There are different stages of beauty. Don't you agree?
Another one that's easy to ignore, but so beautiful if you take a closer look.
(Thanks to TexWis Girl for letting me know its name!)
A cousin to the Mexican hats.
A final hurrah for the summer.
This sign is close to the road I walk almost every day, but I don't think I've ever noticed it until now.
I love the combination of blue and rust.
I love how the bark on this post has peeled and flopped over the barbed wire.
See the sign from the photo above in the background?
A man I used to work with told me his family used to eat prickly pear, but I don't remember how he said they cooked it.
(Yes, I know. I can probably find a recipe on the internet, now, right? Hmmm...maybe next year.)
A premonition of cooler weather on its way?
I hope so!
Hello September.... please don't be in as big a rush as August! Take your time and let us enjoy you!
