Almost There

Again, the Live Oaks in Texas are incredible.  We could never have a tree like this in Colorado.  The snow would break off all the branches, especially on the low horizontal ones.  This tree is wider than it is tall!
Debbi Smith Rourke commented yesterday that I was on the edge of Hill Country.  I thought that the low rolling hills were "the hills".  I was almost there!

Beautiful! Love the live oaks. Ha - thanks for the plug. You'll have to come back in the spring or fall and we'll do the wine tour in the Hill Country. So much fun. Hill Country looks even better then!! :)

Debbi, I would love to come back...so much to do, so much to see, so many paintings awaiting me!

Thanks Karen, these trees are so incredible...green and leaves in January!

Nancy, I'll have to look for the live oaks when I'm back out your way!

Cathyann, I am back on google reader! Don't know how I got lost, but am thankful to the Geek Squad at Best Buy. I finally went in for help.
