Photo Day

This was our day off so my way to relax is to take pictures. First stop, Gage Gardens. This is such a great place to walk around, sit and enjoy the plants and manicured grounds. The flowers were starting to bloom so they soon became my favorite item to shoot.

They had some Trumpet vine along a fence and the following shot had a bonus to it.

Next was a place on Hwy. 385, called Prairie Dog Town.

Blue Quail
Back home, I found this Blue Quail calling on a fence post. Soon there were 3 more. As I was taking this shot a hummingbird whizzed by my ear.

Good day to relax. Now it’s time to fire up the grill. German Sausage and Pork Loin coming up for dinner. Mmmm…good.

 

Happy Easter from Marathon Texas

The owner has some quail blocks out on the property and I’ve been trying to catch some quail feeding there. They are very skittish, so you have to be still to get some pics.
