March Madness

Uploaded: March 27, 2014 06:51:33


It's (finally) fruit tree blooming time here in Central TX. The trees are literally covered with different types of butterflies lining up and fluttering about for a taste. Just watching them, I finally feel that Spring has slowly meandered around to our corner of the world - sure took it's time this year.

Have a good Thursday!
