Observations On A Field Trip

I am fortunate to have a close friend who owns a gorgeous riverfront property near San Antonio.
I visited last weekend and we walked down to the river.  I grew up in Kansas where the rivers had water that looked a lot like cappuccino:  very muddy water.  It never ceases to amaze me when I see the crystal clear, aquamarine color of the water here.

I adore the Cypress trees that line the banks of this river.
limestone lines the edge of my friend's property.
I love looking at all the contours and cracks in it.
How does a plant manage to grow out of the center of this rock?
Near the river's edge a cardinal take a bath
Even if they are considered to be a nuisance by many,
these thistle blossoms are lovely.


  1. Looks like the Wimberley area? Beautiful.

    1. Linda, this is along the Medina River close to Castroville. Such a special place!

  2. Isn't it beautiful! I live in Hunt on the Guadalupe River.

  3. LOVE the cardinal taking a bath! We never see them in California, and to see one like this is a super special treat.

    1. You must come for a visit someday, Jane. I have many pairs of cardinals in my garden. They are fairly common here!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
