Rhodie bush on Hewitt Road, lit/backlit as much as the weak sun could muster late this afternoon.
While I was taking pictures, two people driving by stopped to comment on how beautiful that bush is. Only one was someone I knew.  Leaflady (Gail)

Gone But Not Forgotten

I took these photos back in February on my last trip to Galveston. I've been meaning to post them for sometime now, but have been very distracted lately.

This was taken at the east end of the island where the bird sanctuary used to be. Somebody named Chris spray painted the words "gone but not forgotten" on the steps. The clean up process after Hurricane Ike is going to take a while, but the birds are making do. There are more photos of birds on my other blog.

This is where my favorite restaurant used to be. I'd park at the east end of the island, and walk about 2 or 3 miles, eat lunch, and then walk back.

A bit crowded here.

spring flowers

I took these pics walking around the expensive subdivision on the top of Hewitt Road today. The orange ones are Calif. poppies but I don't know what the others are, and they are really interesting.
I'm walking up there a lot, cuz I hope the climb up the steep hill will get me in better condition. Laure and Nancy were giving me a hard time about getting winded during a fast folk dance a few weeks ago. Realized I no longer live in a 2-story house or climb 2 flights of stairs several times a day at work.
