This is happening right now, much needed RAIN! It is the long, soaking kind. We need it badly!
It is believed that Texas has big bugs. I spotted this one while sitting on my back porch snapping photos of ducklings. It flew into sight and landed on the fence for rest, I suppose.
What do you think? Are bugs this big where you live?
I have a friend who moved here from the Chicago area a couple of years ago. She has embraced Texas whole-heartedly, crepe murtles, snakes and all. I love reading her facebook because I get to see Texas through her eyes. And her friends back home! Sheesh. They act like she has moved to Hell itself. It is good to be reminded about the unique things where I live.
One last picture....
These two ducklings posed for pictures. Aren't they cute? They like to nap in my yard now. Next thing you know they will be moving into the house.
Funny story. When I was painting one of the rooms upstairs a few weeks ago something got in my roller and stuck to the wall. I had to climb the ladder to see what it was and remove it. Can you guess what it was? A downy duck feather! How it got up there I don't know but it made me smile.
