We’re nowhere near done with wildflowers.
We’re nowhere near done with Spring.
And nowhere near done with rain.
Every shade of green colors the county.
Water still runs in the creeks.
Tanks full and holding.
Wrens feeding their young.
Roadrunner with a lizard.
Hawk in the tree.
A snake dangling from its talons.
Baby cottontail nestled inside a hollow stump.
Everything on the move.
(Atchoo! Atchoo! Atchoo!)
And that includes local artists.
Talk about creating and producing.
The Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country held their third annual art show.
And judging from the work, they’ve all been inspired.
Many of them exhibited paintings so new the paint hadn’t dried.
Plus ceramics, jewelry, pen & ink drawings, collage, and photography.
Food, drink, and a standing-room-only reception made the opening a success.
Not to mention many pieces sold.
Another equally successful turnout occurred for our very own Mason Volunteer Fire Department.
And do they ever deserve it.
Let’s hope the only heat they have to deal with is summer.
Right after we get over this nose-running, eye-itching Spring Fever, that is.
