More Signs of an Early Spring

I found some green stuff peeking up on the trail of a recent hike. Bluebonnets, already? On my drive to the hike, I also saw some Mountain Laurels in bloom (no photos, however, as Austin has a “no using hand-held devices while driving” law).

Looks like cilantro to me, but I wasn’t about to taste it to verify

We passed two ponds. You can see how the clouds changed in just a few minutes.

I’m not sure how this prickly pear cactus pad got separated from the plant, or how it managed to get lodged on the barbed wire fence.
