Summer in Whitnall Park

We live right next to Whitnall Park, a beautiful, huge park complete with a nature preserve, lots of deer, a golf course, botanical gardens, bike trails and even a little red barn. Today I walked Loki over there often and took my camera to capture the beauty that is - literally - in our backyard.

The waterfall from this post is just a wall of rocks with tiny bit of water trickling through (and it was totally un-photogenic). The brush is tall and the trees are green, ready to lose their leaves. The parking lot was packed with a dozen mini vans, the families wanting one last outing before school starts. And the day is cool enough to wear pants - all signs that fall is near.

Those pictures are beautiful. Here in houston it is the hottest that it has been all year, that's how we know that fall is on the way.
