Hill Country Sculpture Gardens

I missed a few weeks blogging. But since the goats in my last post, I've laid down pages and pictures for other venues on 18th century colonial life, Texas native trees, wildlife gardening and more. Among the most fun was this short article about visiting the beginning and the end of American colonial times, Jamestown and Yorktown, Virginia.

Jamestown is a long way from the Hill Country and there's no connection to Texas, except curiosity, so it doesn't rightly belong in a Hill Country blog.
 
But life is all of a piece...and isn't it a good thing that we can eat the cake of experience wherever we find it.

I'm working now on a story I'm calling The Hill Country Sculpture Garden Trail.  Five exceptional  collections, all open-air.  I'm amazed at finding five oases of three-dimensional thought less than two hours drive apart, and off well-known tourist tracks.

The Hill Country Sculpture Garden Trail doesn't exist yet, except in my mind...until my story is published.

You might be thinking it doesn't sound like work-- taking drives in the scenic Texas Hill Country.  Or visiting venues where thought pauses for breath.

You might also think a bite of refreshment is more a reward than work.  

And you would be right.

The work comes later.  But it's a good kind of work, reliving and sharing, opening new roads for unknown friends.
