Busy Bees

Also, our snake, flowers, a hummingbird, our backyard birds, the neighborhood cat, butterflies -- the usual spring suspects!









































A little update on the bee crisis, in case you thought it was old news.

Big City

First up, breakfast at Mi Madre's!




Next up, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center!



Please click on the pic above and check out the hilarious bee that flew in front of camera.













The second we walked in this guy says, "Do you want to see a great horned owl?"  Um, yes please.  Voila!  Behind that cactusy grass.










The pic above gives you the shape of this butterfly, and the pic below shows the bright blue stripe.  So pretty, and so darn fast!



A little nest lined with flower petals.  Too cute!













And back to the airport!  Inexplicably we get to go through the TSA pre-check line so no taking off your shoes, put your chapstick back in your purse, wham bam plenty of time for dinner before we board!

And one last one from Merle, appropriately, Big City:
