365 Days of Photos – Day 147

Yesterday I stopped by a client’s house. I noticed these two pigeons sitting under the tree in her front yard. I thought little of it.

Today I stopped back by to drop something off. As I turned toward my car I noticed the 2 pigeons out of the corner of my eye, sitting in the exact same place. I did a double take.

“Are those the same two birds I saw yesterday?”

My client proudly told me those two pigeons spend a lot of time in her yard.

I had to get my camera out. The pigeons seemed perfectly happy to pose for their photo shoot!

365 Days of Photos – Day 144

Two days ago I posted a picture of one of the plants in my yard. It is not unusual of me to plant something and not know its name (and I sleep fine at night!) However, Midwestern Plant Girl  was stumped and I hate to think my photo could cause her to lose sleep.

The previous shot did not clearly show the bloom. So here is a better photo of the bloom….hopefully this photo will help Plant Girl identify this flower. If not…I hope its not too devastating!

The Texas flag.

Flying over a field of hay.

Before moving to Texas, a state flag was something you learned in school. I don’t remember anyone flying the flag of Ohio on their house or in their yard. I remember it standing in a corner of the cafeteria in elementary school but I don’t remember it flying in my neighborhood.

In Texas the state flag is part of the culture. It flies along side the American flag. It is raised at every possible event. It is sold as a souvenir. There are even clothes made from this flag.

I noticed this particular flag a few weeks ago while driving south on I35. I’m not sure if the photo does it justice….but this flag is huge.
