Square 23 and Scenes from West Texas

Here's square 23. I was going for hyacinths. Not sure I accomplished that, but I do like the way the square came out.

Below are some of my favorite pictures from our trip to west Texas. Such a beautiful, vast part of the world -- I highly recommend it, if you've never visited. My husband kept saying, "I can't believe we're still in Texas!" The landscape is just so different from what we're used to, here in the tropics of Houston. But if you're not from here, the scenes of west Texas might be just what you expect, because they are kind of "stereotypical" Texas scenes. I have to admit, I loved every minute of it!

This is historic Fort Davis. Really wonderful historic site, very educational. My girls loved it:





Below is the courthouse in Fort Davis:

We stopped in Pecos, Texas. They have the greatest sign I'd ever seen -- I love these old fashioned silhouette signs:





Guadalupe Mountains National Park, which is right on the border with New Mexico:



We stopped briefly in Ozona, Texas, to see the Davy Crockett memorial:

They also had a neat pioneer memorial:

And another lovely old courthouse (I have a thing for old courthouses):


That's the end of my travel report for today. Happy stitching!
