01.03.2017 (or HOW IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE THAT TIME FLIES SO FAST!)

Today I spent the morning organizing and tidying up my desk, and also the goals I need to fulfill before the semester ends. Seems far away, but read the alternative title of today’s post…

And now I am working on my notes in the library, and the light in the street was so perfect I had to take a picture of it. I like my city pretty much, it is like a neverending boring and beautiful postcard.

This postcard from the World’s Fair collection is probably my favorite. At first glance it looks a bit boring. However, unlike most postcards that are made of paper, this one is wood. The message on the back is my favorite part, if you read closely you’ll notice that it’s full of tree related puns.

ENCHANTED ROCK

Enchanted Rock is located off highway 16 between Llano and Fredericksburg, Texas. Largest Granite Mountain in the Southwest, 500 feet high covering 640 acres. Enchanted Rock has two caves and many curious boulders, and the name is derived from famous Indian Legends. Captain Hayes repulsed a band of Indians here in 1841. Tourists and vacationers can enjoy this gigantic Enchanted Rock with its many beautiful shade trees, running spring water and picnic grounds.

Repulses the Indians, then names rocks after their legends.

SAGEBRUSH — STATE FLOWER OF NEVADA

SAGEBRUSH

This beautiful scene of sagebrush with its colorful pink blossoms is a common sight in the southwest. It stretches as far as the eye can see and besides being beautiful, has practical purposes, as deer and other wildlife feed on it. Sagebrush blooms only after a heavy rain but will bloom in any season. It’s referred to as Cenizo by many Anglos as well as Latin Americans.
