Poppies and a few photos from recent trip to TX

A profusion of poppies populated the back garden patch, a welcome sight.

I enjoyed seeing gorgeous cloudscapes on my flight to and from Texas last week.

I loved visiting my niece in Austin for a day and a half.

Ranger is my niece's BIG 130-pound Newfoundland dog. When we walked down the hip SoCo area of Austin (South Congress Avenue) everyone commented, "Wow! What a BIG dog! What kind is it? How much does it weigh? What's it eat?" My niece should get a preprinted T-shirt with answers to the most often asked questions.

I also attended the wedding of my cousin's son and made these table runners as gifts for the newlyweds. The marriage was held at the beautiful Highland Park Methodist Church in Dallas. It was indeed wonderful to see so many cousins and their childrens' children!
