This large blooming cactus is flourishing in our community garden. I got some nice photos in the afternoon sunshine today.

Copperfield Nature Trail
The Copperfield Nature Trail is about 3.5 miles of trail that runs along Walnut Creek on the East side of I35 in Austin. I started from Copperfield Park, and followed the trail as it bends along the Creek side. This trail is embedded in a few neighborhoods, so expect some street noise as you hike. This makes for a nice walk after work and before the sun sets.
The bluebonnet fields were cool. The views of downtown from St. Edward’s University were nice. But the ladybugs posing for photos were by far the best.
Daylight Saving Time
Thank you Daylight Saving Time. I now have an extra hour of sunlight after work so I can take more interesting walks and use the last bits of the sun’s rays to take more interesting photos. Yay!
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. 🙂
