M for Moscow


M for Marvelous- Moscow is an amazing city!  This is a sign for the Metro subway system, one of the busiest in the world: about 9 million trips PER DAY on  the system.  We made our share, riding it daily while we visited.  The stations are also magnificent displays of public art, and not a little propaganda for the USSR.  Worth a visit!

Chartreuse


Spring Azaleas in full sun on the grounds of the Goodman-LeGrand Museum in Tyler.  Not sure what the gorgeous red is behind it, but I LOVE the color contrast here.
Russia in 4 days!

Bouquet


I love how this tree has grown up in the middle of this pipe, it looks like a green bouquet in a concrete vase.  This is near the old Cotton Belt Depot in Tyler, jst outside of an active wye still used by Union Pacific.
I've been pretty sporadic about posting photos here lately, been crazy busy at work.  We're in the middle of New Student Conference season, and also I've been really involved with my Fish Camp (shout out to all the awesome members of CAMP MATHER!)  One week from today, I will be on a plane to RUSSIA for nine days- boy will I have some photos for you when we get back!
