Walk With Me Wednesday

May, already. Last week was a total bust for blogging, although I did manage to keep up pretty well on my Bloglines. Work was every bit as hectic as I anticipated; the sock knitting that I carry to work got almost nothing done on it, and at night I was too tired to do anything except garter stitch on Felicity's blanket.

But I did get a four day weekend!

Saturday we went down the mountains with some friends, and I did get a bit of a walk in after dinner. The day was rather dreary; windy and cloudy, but the rain missed us. The wind and the clouds kept things rather cool, and I had to don a sweatshirt for my walk. Things still look rather drear in the desert, but there are wildflowers to be found amidst the dry grasses.

Those black spots in the bottom picture? Cattle grazing behind one of our friends' house. Not their cattle. But what a view!

Yeah, what Laura said! Wonderfully moody landscapes. Beautiful color studies. Can't you see these colors for domestic interiors? Heck, I'm thinking those photos would look great blown up and hung on a wall. You have such a great eye!

That sky is so big and so threatening. I think that weather may be headed our way.

It's amazing how similar this looks to Colorado (west of the Springs)! I'm up in the mountains but when we drive down to Texas this is pretty much the landscaping for much of the way. Thanks for letting us go on a walk with you!
