A Year in Flora and Fauna: Fall & Early Winter 2010

We had some beautiful leaf color this November, and I discovered an amazing sculpted metal tree on the East Austin Studio Tour. The new vegetable plots out front produced a batch of radishes (delicious on toast with goat cheese), and soon I'll harvest spinach, chard, and broccoli. On Christmas Eve afternoon, my mother and I went on a three hour tour, I mean hike, in the pineywoods of Bastrop. We thought we were going on a little loop, but it turned out to be 5 miles long one-way, 10 miles total without any water or snacks (but perfect hiking weather!). Long hikes have now made my resolution list for 2011. Happy New Year everyone!!

I'll admit that having a large, active dog helps me maintain a daily hike habit. Which I'm thankful for because there are so many beautiful moments out there to catch.
