This is an awesome time in Central Texas. The wildflowers are beginning to pop up. This groovy patch can be found at Park Hills Baptist Church, and there is also a nice view of downtown Austin from this site. Have fun if you go, and beware of the traffic on the nearby road. 🙂
This is a pretty church that can be found just north of the County Courthouse in Marfa. The church and the surrounding trees made for some colorful photos.
Let this be a lesson to me – don’t be grumpy when you find yourself about a mile away from your car, with the umbrella in the trunk, and you are walking back in the rain. You never know when a magnificent rainbow will pop up out of nowhere to put an exclamation point on your awesome day in Austin. 🙂
If you walk around Fredericksburg you will see a few tall church steeples. Here are some images from one of those historic churches in town.
This old church is in such a state of disrepair that it makes you want to cry. Some windows are busted out and covered with plywood. Some of the roof shingles have fallen off. It is surrounded by thick bushes and flying insects. You can’t even get close to the front entryway. I am hoping that someone will want to restore it to glory.
