Good morning, from my bed in Byers, TX.
I woke up just after 6 o’clock this morning looked outside and saw it was still dark. So I got back in bed and had no problem falling asleep again.
I left the curtain open and woke up with the sun peeping through the leaves on the trees. The birdsong this morning was so beautiful.
I started thinking about the seasons and the changes here in our garden and our surroundings.
When I first arrived here in Byers in January, the trees were bare and the grass was brown. I did not see any wildflowers but I was not really focused on spotting any.
I left in March, and the trees just started getting new leaves, and the grass was green. Wildflowers were coming up everywhere. Unfortunately I left before they were in full bloom.
I returned in June again and everything was still beautiful and green. Different Wildflowers was showing off their beauty. The weather was humid and hot.
Then the dry heat came in the middle op July and the grass turned brown, but the trees gave us shade to enjoy the outdoors.
The grass was dead until the first heavy rain at the end of September then it started to turn green again. By the end of October the leaves on the trees started turning different shades of yellow, brown, orange and lighter greens. I also spotted different wildflowers.
I love how green the grass and shrubs is at the moment. The trees are busy throwing off their leaves and one of these days they will be bare again. The grass will turn brown again in the winter.
My brain is working over time. I have so many projects lined up that I will be swamped in 2024… Wildflowers, Landscapes, visiting small towns here in the USA. Editing backlog of photos. I am working on my South African flower book and wall calendars for 2025.
Well I better get going.

PS. I am saving up for upcoming Landscape Photography Trips to Scotland and Namibia and a few road trips in the USA, including Route 66 and The historic Apache Trail. Also on my list are National Parks and Botanical gardens in South Africa, the UK, and the USA.
The most important photography trip for me is to return to Scotland. I am honoring my promise to my Father to return and capture the beautiful landscapes and the elusive Puffins. Your help to make these trips a reality would be much appreciated in today’s economy.
