Observed while wife was at "Golden Needles and Quilts" in Rockport -- it was nice being this close to the ocean; I knew I would see some new stuff. :)
Observed while wife was in "Things in a Room" quilt shop in Fredricksburg with a lady that talked waaaaaay too much, apparently. :) All good -- gave me some time to explore out by this little creek.
The English ivy was strangling this tree...
In a swimming pool shed at Springston School.
