yikes, great bugs...

Here's our lonely lily...most get eaten by the koi.



Is that a reflection of a United Airlines 747 in my pond?

I'm curious to know what Dexter thinks of all of this, and what has become his/her thread. I don't think they've posted since the initial post.

Yeah, almost 6 months behind! Better recharge your batteries before you use the camera.

Those are some nice looking fish.

As a change of pace, how about some pictures of the actual surroundings?

One of my most favorite places to go in Texas. Pedernales Falls. I can, and have spent entire days out there doing nothing but climbing over the rocks to see what scenery was behind them.

Beautiful photos. They look like something the kind that are on calendars. I love the last one of the tree roots. Looks surreal. Viewing nature like that is amazing. The first time I saw the Grand Canyon it brought tears to my eyes, it was just so majestic.

It's all good. Glad to see the interest that the post inspired, and enjoying the pictures. Just a busy time of year, so have looked in some, but not a lot of time to post lately. In between regular work, just finished up a real nice wheelchair ramp for a gal, so that she can move her daughter back from a home to her home, a long one as the first floor is out of the ground 48", so landing with a cutback halfway, and a perfect tie in to the driveway. And, with that done, we've started two Habitat homes, so it gets busier, as I typically do a lot of the layout work and like that, and lead crews of volunteers as I am able.

Back closer to topic though, the wife and I thinned out some trees on the property the last few weeks of winter, cut and got rid of about 10 cord of wood, then mounted the shredder on the tractor, and made probably 6-7 yards of mulch out of the branches, so had a lot of time outdoors to enjoy the seasonal transition. Have a mink hanging around now, and they are of course fairly elusive, so each sighting is very appreciable. As for "Rockette", yup, she's still in the nest with her young one(s), so we're glad that we didn't cause her to relocate, but only catch a glimpse of her once in a while, as she starts peeking out the hole about dusk. Plenty of deer, turkeys, coyote, and like that around, and wish that I could keep up with you guys on posting pics. I do have a digital camera, and in fact still have a real nice 35mm, which I used to use a bit more, but grew up with an old, cumbersome by today's standars, Argus in the home, which of course we kids weren't to touch, and mom and dad didn't use much, so while I enjoy photography, I never really got into the habit of grabbing a camera at the right times. Anyway, yes, very much enjoying the stories and pictures.

Well, off to the lumber yard. Am working on a project that requires a bit more than just nailing some boards in place, and their in house expert was equally baffled, so I have an appointment with one of the regional guys in a bit. You all have a good day.
