Flight of the hummingbird. Slow things down and they start to make sense.#hummingbird#birdistheword#slowmovement#foofighters A beautiful allergy.#txbackroad#igtexas#blackeyedsusan#austincounty You wouldn't know it from this pic of our Robertson Ranch project but we just had another night of significant rains. Texas continues to get hammered by rising water. Some parts of the hill country have had some disastrous flooding.Locally we have been fairly lucky, Lake Somerville closed the flood gates to alleviate some flooding downstream and water is spilling over dam. The lake in Bastrop state park breached the dam and all the water drained into the creek. Almost all the local creeks are well outside their banks. But for the moment the sun is shining the skies are clear and progress on the house continues.#artisanbuilders#txcustomhomes#txbuilder#customhomebuilder Today we spent the afternoon on the banks of the rising Brazos River which looks like chocolate milk due to all the rich farmland it runs through. Amongst beautiful trees:Pecan,Hickory,Mesquite,Magnolia,Post Oak,Live Oak,Water Oak,Pin Oak,Sycamore just to name a few. Steps from where the Declaration of Independence from Mexico in 1836 was signed.A month after the battle at the Alamo happened. #txhistory#1836#washingtononthebrazos#brazosriver Crop dusting with balls of steel.#cropdusting#ballsofsteel#elevation#txfarming#aerobatics#collegestation Don't forget to turn.#familylife#dadslife#byrds#molly#smilemore#frownless Cactus Flower #txcactus#txflower#stopandsmelltheflowers Graduation day!
