Even living in a big city like Houston, there are bits of wild along the roads and bayous where one can pick blackberries in season. Fresh blackberries just so happen to be delicious when baked in a pie. Yum.
A few days ago, Houston's Art Car Parade temporarily transformed the roadways just west of downtown on Allen Parkway. Our favorite car year after year?....St Arnold Brewery's tie dyed Bentley. The Amazing Reese and I are posing (St Arnold beer in hand) with friend and owner of the brewery, Brock Wagner. Not only does Brock brew the best tasting beer in the state of Texas, he also makes a mean margarita. I speak from experience.
Anna has become a seasonal worker. Last summer she spent working just outside Denali National Park in Alaska. Over the winter, she worked and lived on a dude ranch in southern Arizona. And in two weeks-ish, she'll be working on another dude ranch in far northern Colorado. It will be a while before we see her again, so I'm taking advantage of every opportunity as an excuse to chronicle her short visit at home in photographs (and paintings.) For this photo, she was only going out with a friend for a couple of hours, but any excuse, right?
