I’ve been super busy this month with Master Gardener activities and it’s not going to let up for the next 6 – 8 weeks. I had two meetings today in Denton, so I stayed in town over lunch and ate tried a new place to eat, The Bowllery.
I tried the Denton Bowl and an Almond Mocha smoothie, both delicious and both completely vegan. I’m going to have to take David there, as I know he will like it.
Their salt & pepper shakers have small figures in them that appear as you use up the salt or pepper. Very cute!
After my meetings, I took a little time to check out the Bayless-Selby House, which is where my group has a tour scheduled on April 19th for our Master Gardener Mini-Tour. The people in charge of the house told us that the gardens would be best that week, but I thought they were gorgeous right now, so I took a lot of pictures. And they have a whole field of bluebonnets!
After one of the warmest January’s on record, February has turned much colder. I took this picture late Monday afternoon:
We had a scant 1/100th inch of precipitation and the next morning there were low hanging clouds and a dusting of snow on the Huachuca Mountains:
Monday’s walk was cut short due to the cold west wind and Tuesday I never went out at all, it was so cold. It might be just as well, as walking seems to be aggravating my right knee, injured somehow during my attempts at clogging a few years ago. It originally took a whole year to heal, but within the second week of starting up walking last month, the pain was coming back. Very odd and I wonder if I need to buy new sneakers. In any case, I used the elliptical yesterday instead of walking outside and will probably continue to do that this week until I can find new shoes for walking.
This noon I have a lunch date at a friend’s house and I’m bringing my Plant-Strong Chopped Apple Cake. It sure smells good!
