When the weather turns warm and sunny in the spring, I'm not as interested in shopping as I am in getting outside to enjoy the pretty flowers. Fortunately, there are lots of nice places around here to go. I volunteer at the Child Study Center on Tuesdays, so this week after I went there, I headed over to the Botanical Gardens to enjoy the spring blooms.
I didn't know Lily of the Valley even grew in Texas!
(They probably had it in a hothouse until it was time for it to bloom)
Get on the back paths and you never know who you might meet:
(Go away, you young whippersnapper)
This guy didn't seem to be phased by me (but the toddler coming down the path behind me was another matter)
