Last update - April 22

April 8 - morning
Stained glass window - Praha.
I had the great pleasure of leading a tour through to the "Painted Churches" this past weekend - the first time I have doen this in three of four years. It felt like I was visiting old friends. I hope you enjoy this brief photographic tour. BTW, KLRU-TV, Austin's PBS affiliate just began streaming the documentary I produced about the churches here.
Celestial colors of Dubina.
Interior of Moravia. Wish this church was open to the public!
Detail in Moravia - the sweetest detail in any of the churches (in my book.)
Baptismal in Dubina.
Wildflowers - blue eyed grass.
In an old dance hall in Schulenberg.
April 18 - morning
Cedar waxwing in our Savannah Holly.
It is a fairly cool and humid morning following a day of intermittent showers and storms. The garden is emerald green and everything seems to have grown a foot in just the last few days. I am enjoying a fairly quiet weekend - a rare thing for me, and hope to head out into the Hill Country in a short while to hunt for wildflowers. I am hoping the sky lightens just a bit for the pictures. I also hope your spring is going well and that you find some particular thing to love today.
They have long since stripped every berry out of the garden.
Sunning on a cool morning.
Mexican plums. (From March.)
Titmouse on the birdhouse outside of my home office window.
Gathering food for the nestlings.
Checking in on the brood.

Ranch road between Johnson City and Fredericksburg.
I really just want to say one thing this morning: go!
Same scene as above taken earlier in the day.
