I was walking along our back fence one morning at the same time a momma 'possum with two babies on her back was walking along the other side.
I don't know who was more startled.
I was so fascinated with them I forgot to take their picture until momma was scurrying away. By the time I got the shot, one baby had fallen off and was trying desperately to get back on. The other was well on it's way to falling off. That's OK. Sometimes it is more fun to just watch.

This is the other waterlily that I found in bloom. I understand that a lot of flowers are not blooming well this year because of the excessive dry weather that we had. It appears the drought may have broken in typical Texas style but may be too late for wild spring flowers.

We went camping this past weekend. The park, Lake Mineral Wells State Park, where we stayed is a small park but is perfect to just get away and relax. We had a great time even though it was a lot hotter than I had expected. A lot hotter than it normally is this time of year....breaking records hot! I don't do hot gracefully.
The granddaughters enjoyed it because it was warm enough for them to swim in the lake.
A surprise local attraction is a botanical garden Clark Gardens in the middle of nowhere. It is beautifully maintained and has grown considerably since I first started going. It was a little too early in the season for a lot of blooming plants. I plan on going back soon.

In bathroom decor. Or...how to recyle creatively. We had a visit from a couple of budding home decorators. I am not sure which one came up with this idea although I have my suspicions. But hey...it works for me. I think they can give Hildy and Doug a run for their money.
