Where do we go from here?
Tuesday, March 09, 2010
As I myself will soon be blowing into Texas, this coming weekend in fact. My spring break is next week, and my nieces in Dallas both have the same break, so I'm heading across El Llano Estacado to visit them and their parents for several days. A dear friend also lives in Dallas, and she too has that week off, so she will be driving back with me for a long weekend visit with us here in New Mexico. I badly need this time, and a road trip, to blow the cobwebs of winter out of my soul. Gotta go to the library and find the perfect long audio book to last me at least to Amarillo. From that point on there should be some wildflowers already blooming, at least according to the Sightings page at Wild About Texas Wildflowers. I wish I had enough time to detour down to Austin and visit the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center, but that trip will have to wait a while.
The Dallas Arboretum for Dallas Blooms. This floral festival began last weekend, and lasts until April 11. It seems early to me, at least for the way things are here right now, but according to the websight, there are many things that should be blooming in mid-March. Crazy teenage girls, forsythia, tulips, irises, flowering quince, maybe even azaleas? Hopefully sunshine and balmy weather? I'm there, baby. Just have to get through this week's classes and blustery storms, and I'll be there in a more than virtual way.
