Lucky to spend Father’s Day this year biking around a rainy downtown Austin with my Dad.  While I know it’s technically called Lady Bird Lake now, she’ll always be Town Lake to me

Quiet dear, I’m blooming within

2014.Austin.9

Sure, wildflowers grow just about everywhere, but nothing compares to my memories of them in Texas.  The harsh sun means wildflowers there are of a hardier stock that the delicate beauties that grow in the north, and throughout the spring and summer, the state bursts into fields of bluebonnets, paintbrushes, Mexican hats, and black-eyed Susans.  While I was in Austin last weekend, the firewheels were in bloom, lining the highways, and filling people’s gardens and all the fields with the only kind of wildfire that is welcome around here.
