What You Do When The Helium Ballon Falls.

I had so much fun with this I can't resist sharing several. 

Testing what the balloon feels like
The first attack

Checking another approach
Backing up on it.

This went on for almost 30 minutes.

Jicama, Pachyrhizus erosus

I love eating Jicama.  This is my first year to grow it. Already made a mistake, you are supposed to cut the flowers off.

See the seed pods, toxic.  I am going to save one or two for planting next year.  Only edible part is the tuber.

Natural Contrasts

The forest is full of contrasts. Dying pines, renewed elms, white bark of sycamores, with a background of clouds. Quite pretty.

Perfect Flag Weather

Texas is the only State that the State flag can be flown at the same level as the US Flag.

Evening Gray Skies

I love the different levels of clouds. The sky peeping through. I could even see faces. Fun evening.
