This cute little chickadee was posing for me this morning as I sat out on the carport just enjoying the morning. He was so cute I took a whole series of pictures. Usually chickadees flitter and flutter around so fast I can't get pictures of them, so I was happy that he was posing for me!
My young neighbor is growing a garden in the cow pasture in an enclosed area behind a barn-like structure. But there's no water there. And her house is too far away to run a hose there, so she runs a hose from my house to the garden. We are on a well, so it's not a big deal and she's very thoughtful. But the other night when she came to shut the water off - I had to chuckle to myself. Here she was in shorts and a tank top and wearing COWBOY BOOTS. It was one of those "only in Texas" moments to me. But really it made sense cause she had to tromp through the cow pasture to get to my house - it just struck me funny at the time. Here's a picture of her garden in the cow pasture.
