A Lazier Day Today

Sioux looking over Pedernales Falls, east of Johnson City

When I say "lazy day", I mean LAZY. We didn't wake up until 11 am!!! Guess we were tired from one day driving down here and another driving all over the Hill Country. It was too late to get a breakfast meal, so we settled for a lunch at a place call Sunshine in Blanco. And all I can say is DO NOT EVER EAT THERE!!

Then we went to the Blanco Lavendar shop and got some goodies...plan to go back for more, as well. Hill Country Lavendar in Blanco is wonderful!! The pottery is beautiful, as well. If you're in Blanco, go there. It's a must!

Then we went to Blanco State Park. Raf fished, and I drew. Then on to Pedernales Falls State Park. We hiked and looked. Then on to a restaurant called Nutty Browns that is between Dripping Springs and Austin on Highway 290. It was the first real FOOD we had since we began this trip...and the flowers were beautiful, too.

Tomorrow we go to Austin to do Austin "rat killing"...Whole Foods, books, art supplies at Jerry's, Austin Camera, and on to Al and Cea's for their monthly song circle.

So here's what we saw today.
Little yellow wildflower.

I don't think we get Blue Bonnets here, but when ever anyone mentions them I think of Texas..!

I've never heard the term "rat killing" as it relates to shopping!
Love all your beautiful flower photos!
