A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

On the Road to Hico Antique Show 2014

Monday, April 21, 2014

Good friends who 
guarantee laughter invited a group 
 to go on a small road trip. 

Bluebonnets, antiques, and pie 
are all on the schedule. 

The hostess who invited us to her house 
for the weekend in the Texas countryside 
posted this photo of bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes 
on her FB page. 
 It was taken near the entrance to her driveway.

"Y'all the Hico Hotties?"

  1. Good morning, Judith.
    This sounds like such great fun! And there's pie too? Perfection! :)
    Have a great day,

  2. Judith, I know it will be a fun time. Makes me want to plan a trip. '-)
    The wildflowers are gorgeous. I've been awed by the mix of Indian Paints in with the Bluebonnets this year.
    So which one are you in this lineup? ~ Sarah

    1. Sarah,
      I'm the dark-haired one, second from the right, wearing sassy red shoes.
