Around the House, Part II
Autumn in north Texas is a funny thing. Some days the winds blow cold and cruel, ripping dried leaves from their tentative hold on tired branches. On others the sun shines gloriously, relentlessly, and one would swear that summer is fast approaching. Naturally, these changeable days play havoc with one's allergies. And one's garden.
The bougainvillea didn't bloom all summer. Not until after our first cold snap did it burst forth with its gorgeous fuschia hue! The hibiscus has issued another tropically tangerine flower as well.
Leaves continue to fall ...

Yuccas and Sagos and Scarecrows, oh my!

Is the front of your fridge as messy as mine?
A Huichol Indian beaded mask -- Fierce with color!
And here's something a bit sweeter:
This was a fun yard sale find. Perfect for holding our keys!
The day is turning dreary, but there's plenty of color to cheer me inside. There's also an "I Love Lucy" marathon on the tube -- And so I'm content, just to be home.
