Houston Here I Come

Early tomorrow I am driving to Houston to attend the Houston International Quilt Festival....woohoo!!  This will be my 4th year to attend.  If you are a quilter this is an event that you will want to attend some time in the future if you get the chance. 

Before I leave I wanted to post a few pictures that I took in the yard this week. 

This orb weaver has decided to weave her web on my front porch. Luckly it rained and I could see the web before I ran into it!

This is a english ivy covered dead tree that fell across my fence and onto the path that runs along with side of the house.  Husband, get out the chain saw. 
I love the moss that grows on dead trees.  There is moss growing all over the acreage.

Papaya, Moon flowers, native cactus, zinnia and Knockout roses are still looking pretty good.

When I get home from Houston, high on quilty inspiration I will start sharing some of my quilt projects.
Until next time,

Your photos are beautiful. I especially like the spider and it's web. I love seeing moss grow on trees....
