Stay

Round and around and around and around we go
Oh, now tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know
Ooh, the reason I hold on
Ooh, ’cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one
But I’m the only one who needed saving
When you finally see the light
It’s hard to know which one of us is caving

The Texas Blackland Prairies ecoregion covers an area of 50,300 km2 (19,400 sq mi), consisting of a main belt of 43,000 km2 (17,000 sq mi) and two islands of tallgrass prairie grasslands southeast of the main Blackland Prairie belt; both the main belt and the islands extend northeast/southwest.

The main belt consists of oaklands and savannas and runs from just south of the Red River on the Texas-Oklahoma border through the Dallas–Fort Worth metropolitan area and into southwestern Texas. The central forest-grasslands transition lies to the north and northwest, and the Edwards Plateau savanna and the Tamaulipan mezquital to the southwest.

River

I’m so in love with these white leafy plants that grow on the river, this year. I’ve Googled them and cannot find the right term/phrase to identify what they’re called so until then, they are a cross between lovely dead crap and wild grasses. They grow to be shot with a Lensbaby Velvet. There is no effort in taking their picture; they are so delicate and move in even the slightest breeze. The post editing is practically effortless as well in that I only brighten the tones up a wee bit. And no matter the time of day, they always look beautiful.
