A greater appreciation for green

I can't say that I have been out of the house much since getting back from vacation, but when I have, I have a greater appreciation for the green of spring here in Texas. It seems like suddenly everything turned from brown to green. I couldn't take pictures while driving down the road this weekend to our craft fair, but Texas is blooming blue. We sure didn't see bluebonnets in Arizona or New Mexico.

We did see a lot of dark pink bougainvillea around Phoenix. If houses had any color along with the palms trees and cactuses, it was this one certain color of dark pink bougainvillea.

However, we did go to the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix.

This wasn't at the garden. This was at the Talking Stick ballpark. We sure don't have cactus growing in our batter's eye at the Ballpark in Arlington.
