Oh well, spring time weather in Texas. If not thunderstorms and hail one day, it is super high levels of mold spores and pollen in the air.
Oh, my nose . . . .
It has, however, been one of the prettiest springs in Texas in many, many years. I find that most every day as I leave my house for work or play, I am anticipating what I might actually get to see and experience.
Granted, I live just a couple miles west of DFW International Airport (actually not as noisy as one might think), and one mile from a major State Hwy that runs north/south on the west side of the airport. One could take it for granted that there would not be that much "nature" in such a location.
Yet, the trees turning green, the wildflowers that are still blooming . . . plus the last day or so, it has actually been sunny . . . I am noticing more birds than I have in our area in some time. My front and back yards have never been as green.
Maybe that is why I haven't enjoyed day-hiking as much these past couple of years, because the scenery around here was "yuckier" than normal.
Not this year. Time to go for a walk . . . after I double-dose some antihistamine.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
