“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  20. Beautiful shots!!! I love that name, Laguna Madre. I am in east Texas and have never been to Padre Island. I seriously think I will pack up my camera and head that way this summer.

  23. Hi Anni ... wow! Breathtakingly beautiful. Postcards or framed prints that sell for hundreds! I wish that I was there to see everything in person. I also really liked the pelican photos, and your background/header (I saw them the other day, but I don't think that I told you.)

    I appreciate you stopping by to visit. Have a great rest of the week!

  29. Ooooh, such wonderful patches of wildflowers!! I can't wait to see flowers growing around here. Actually the snow finally melted from where my flowerbeds are at the front of the house and I have tulips, crocuses and daffodils coming up about 3 inches! Woohoo! lol Now if the rest of the snow would melt I'd be all set:-) xoxo
