In case you haven't gotten the memo yet - it's Spring time in Texas. This little bloomer is out by my bank. Along with a whole variety of trees here in South Austin. It must have been the one sunny day we had on Friday, but whatever it is I like to see the cheery flowers amidst all our rain! Of course the upside of the rain is lakes that are catch up to proper levels. Just a few months ago, the 65 mile long Lake Travis was forty feet down. That's about 40% full. Now, we're above our monthly average and it's about 80% full. At the rate we're going, it will be flooding in no time!
