AUSTIN, TEXAS — We had what I think was a very unique winter. It seemed that before we knew it, temps were hovering around 20 degrees and folks were outside covering their palms / succulents with sheets.
I wasn’t part of that group and instead I adopted and ‘wait and see attitude.’
Only the strong will survive, and those are the ones I want marching forward with me in this dog-eat-dog-world of ‘mother nature always wins.’
Well, everything appears DEAD. LOL!
So I have NO band members to march forward with. Or at least that is how it seems right now. (I am waiting for that one day to do my examinations, when I’ll ask George to play TAPS as I clean out all of my dead band members.)
Our backyard is such a sad sight, but I guess I already mentioned that.
Actually, what I did find, after one brief raking, was a little green onion sprouting from one of my backyard garden beds (see pic above.)
I remembered I had thrown out some chopped up green onion, hoping it would help the soil. And thinking maybe I’d get something .. and sure enough, there’s enough to use to top off black bean tostadas.
