Shrimp boats

Sometimes when we go to Galveston we take a ferry ride and you always see some neat things along the way.

Bolivar is the opposite of Galveston there is hardly any traffic and no shopping there except a little store here and there. Life seems to move at a much slower pace.

On this ferry ride, we saw a few shrimp boats and a few birds catching a free ride. You know those shrimpers have to get annoyed with the birds swarming the boat all the time.

The Gulf of Mexico was quite busy this last weekend.

Azalea time | Manvel, Texas Photographer

In our part of Texas near the gulf coast, the winters are mild and springtime comes early.

Right now the Azaleas are starting to bloom. I planted Azaleas because they were my grandmother’s favorite she even told me what colors to get. It is hard to believe these plants are at least 35 years old.

They bloom their hearts out each and every year and never disappoint me. In March, we tend to have some windy days so sometimes it blows off their blooms. March is usually a rainy month so if the wind does not get the blooms the rain does.

We had a lot of wind and rain last week that destroyed the beauty of my blooms. These pictures were taken in years past.

Have you ever planted a flower or bush in your yard because of your grandmother or mother?

Springtime in Texas is my favorite time of year because the temperatures are perfect and everything is coming alive again.
