I stumbled upon this blog with a ton of information on Texas wildflower! Check it out and it is a great reference for those Texas photographers who capture those flowers but (like me) are not sure of what they are called…
Finally, I was able to check out the stats for the blog. I found it interesting. For some reason I felt that I had reached or shared more people than what the numbers show. I think that is because of the increased interaction from 2010 until 2011, especially in the second half of 2011.
Overall, I am pleased with the growth of the blog – that has been my goal all along – to share my photos and their stories with everyone everywhere!
And MOST OF ALL – I want to sincerely thank all of those who have taken the time to visit. My sincere hope is that in some way one or more of the photos touched you, reminded you of something happy, or inspired you to make a trip, take on a project, or simply take those moments in life to observe the world around you and find those things Round & About that make you smile, laugh, or point and share!
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,100 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 52 trips to carry that many people.

My longtime friend and renowned social media goddess, Pamela Price, posted on me and my photography. I am still humbled by the interest – and quite giddy! Check out her blog site, Red, White and Grew – she has some great topics that she covers, too!
In the meantime – here are some pics of those that inspire and support me in this fun adventure!

My picture “After the shower” made it to the Birds & Blooms newsletter! Look for the purple lily in the center above Monthly photo challenge!

So excited to introduce my new photo book - Nature’s HD - available from Blurb now! I’ve also entered it into the Photography Book Now contest for 2010.
It is dedicated to Shannon Clinkenbeard, my husband-to-be. It shows you some of my flower photos and has some narrative to share my thoughts on the photos and hopefully give you a jumping off spot for your own imagination!
Thank you all for the inspirations and support as I have worked on it. I’m also excited to do this again!
If you are a Texan – listen up! We all know the trend for eating well has actually turned into a way of life for the population. Being the agricultural state that Texas is, its time that we Texans step up and acknowledge our previously unrecognized local agriculture specifically in the realm of fruit and vegetable gardens. Take a minute to ask your gubernatorial candidates, via the Dig for Texas petition, to recognize and promote the local and state agriculture.
Each year Pella, Iowa has a tulip festival. Though their gardens are beautiful any time of year, this is their showstopping event and feature. The town is home to the Pella Windows & Doors manufacturing plant – hence its name.
I haven’t made it to the festival – yet. But can only dream standing amidst the thousands of tulips – as they are easily my favorite flower. In lieu of my not having attended I may just order some tulips to plant in my own yard. Here are some links to the festival page and a PDF order form if you want to order some plants – HURRY, you must order by 6/10.
Check out the Blanco Lavender Festival. Can’t help but walk away smellin’ sweet!
