Landscape as life

LiveOak.2We so often find that the beauty about living in Texas is the time we spend outdoors. We live outside roughly 10 months of the year, taking time always to enjoy dining al fresco whenever possible and going on long, meandering walks. Here in Austin, the landscape acts as yet another character playing out our everyday lives. The trees are craggy and undulating, they unfurl their branches towards the ground and draw us in. The live oaks are concurrently haunting and enchanting, filled with such great personality that you wish to stop and listen, for surely they must have stories to tell. We have lived all over, yet each time we find that it is the trees and plants that ground you and, for lack of a better explanation, literally root you in a place. Sometimes soaring and majestic, othertimes colourful and crisp, still all the while budding or green or bare. Ever-changing, ever-adapting, ever full of life…
