Carole M. said...

well, loving your new header and the new you photo too Theresa. Lovely barn photo and I've never heard of Indian Paintbrushes before, summizing that they're the red flowers in the field. Are they considered a weed I wonder?

Linda said...

I like the new header, and the new photo of you! Very nice...also nice treatment of the photo of the barn... and the flowers in the foreground add just that special touch of color!

Dicky Bird said...

I love Indian Paintbrush flowers. It will be a while before we see them in Wisconsin..

thesedaysofmine.com said...

Very pretty - unusual colored roof - at least it would be for the barns around here...!

Betty Roan said...

Indian Paintbrushes are almost as pretty as Bluebonnets, brighter anyway. Nice barn, too.

Catherine said...

Gosh it would be wonderful to run through that green pasture in bare feet! Hopefully there is no cow droppings though. Haha!

Such lush green!

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Love that neat tidy barn with the white fencing! The Indian Paintbrush is a brilliant pop of color! Love your new header too!

Honest Abe said...

I like the Indian paintbrushes. Their spots of bright red makes the picture. The cool barn is nice but not friendly like the flowers. I wish people would paint their barns with things like they used to around here. Something besides Chew Mail Pouch.

Karen said...

The Indian paintbrush is so pretty... it's a wildflower? We don't have it here, I don't think.

Hound Girl said...

I hardly saw any indian paintbrushes around here in Austin this year, it was a little dispointing actually, im so glad that you have them and wow they really pop out in the field.

Katie @Pinke Post said...

I've never seen an Indian paintbrush before but what I love most about the photo is the GREEN Texas grass!

Judy said...

We don't have the Indian Paintbrushes around here, but I always look for them when I travel in the west.

I like the touch of red in the paintbrush. Nice new banner too.

Love the new header! I'm not familiar with 'Indian Paintbrushes', they look great in that pasture.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

My eye went straight to the pin-up girl photo off to the right. Right out of the 40's & 50's with a 60's photo touch to it. Well done. Now lets see...what was this post about anyway? I forgot to look.

Rohrerbot said...

Nice shots!!! I like what you've done to the pictures!:) It's good to be back in the US again and within internet range. I was in the middle of the ocean looking for Blue Footed Boobies and watching people get sea sick....lol:) Quite the time, but lots of fun. Indian Paintbrush looks fantastic and it's one of my favorites around the landscape:)

mick said...

Interesting photo of the barn. That's more the style I see most of out here.

Google could help me find out what Indian Paintbrush are. I've thought the flowers are poppies.
Nice picture from the white barn with the red flowers.
I like the new header and the photo of you.

parker said...

Another favorite Wildflower of mine. Nice!

Lois Evensen said...

Interesting shapes and composition. Love the flowers. We are on the road right now and loving the flowers we are seeing. Tomorrow we will be home!

Faye said...

Is this an unusual color of barn for TX? Regardless, it's perfect for the paintbrushes to play against. Are they mostly a spring flower or into summer?

Rizalenio said...

A peaceful place. Very nice photo.

Rose said...

This is really nice, Tex!

Mary Howell Cromer said...
