More bluebonnet photos!

More ... in no particular order ...

And on my walk back to my car, I found some weedy looking plants that have cute little flowers, too!

Bluebonnets in Creekside Park

Creekside Park is a residential area in The Woodlands where there's a large open section with bluebonnets in it. I think they were cultivated, but now the area is open for people to enjoy ... have picnics, take photos, etc!!

And a couple of panoramas, just to get the feeling of the expanse of this!

Spandaus on Spring Break

Out of the cold and snow in PA, and into the sunshine and warmth of Key West!! Hooray!

 The view on the drive to Key West.

A stop for lunch at Islamorada. 

Beautiful sunset!

Updating my house!

I've wanted to get more done to make my house easier to cool in summer, and one of my goals was to save and put solar screens or solar film on all the windows. 

Here are the "before" photos:

from the back

Screens are now installed ... and I love them all!
