Winter

It’s Winter at the Pecan Grove, my favorite secret place in Austin. If I could build a little hidey-hole shack at the Pecan Grove and live with the deer, birds and cacti, I so would. Unfortunately, being a public park and all, I can’t do that. And the speed boats blaring past on the nearby water way would drive me distracted. It’s still a lovely place.

Beautyberry

Every walk, summer or winter, I find little bits to bring home. Seeds, nuts, poddy things, dried things, mostly dead things. Some recognizable, some not so much. The first one is American beautyberry, the second might be Chinese tallow? Definitely not as well named as beautyberry and very invasive, but apparently good for soap makings. Taken with an Oly e-500.

November Austin

Yes, we do get some Fall color here in Texas. One of my favorite walks has a variety of trees and bushes changing right now, but mostly elms, pecans and Virginia creeper. Taken with an Olympus E-500 along Bull Creek on a dreary lovely November day.
