On the Road in East Texas

Just for Grins 
As Buzz and I have traveled to East Texas over the past several months, we've seen some things that made us smile ... or at least, stopped us in our tracks.
Let me show you what I mean.
First of all, if you've never been to East Texas, let me tell you, it's covered with trees and the flowers are always beautiful.  In fact, East Texas is well known for it's  Dogwood trees and Azalea bushes...
both breathtaking when in full bloom.
But then there is this!

We spotted him outside one of our favorite "Mom & Pop" cafe's.
Some how this just doesn't seem right - no matter how you look at it.  
(and I'm not talking about the fact that he's holding Poinsettia on the first day of Spring)
Then there was this!

 At least the license plate says Arkansas...
I'm sure no one in Texas would EVER do this.
(shouldn't this be illegal?!?!)

To say the least, 
both of these were a little unsettling,
seeing this made up for it.
I took this picture of Daffodil's along the roadside last Spring,
  but it looked just the same yesterday when we drove by.

So Beautiful
Fully Redeemed
East Texas
