The rain lilly

In the Texas hill country, rain lillies like these appear a day or so after a heavy rain in the spring and summer.

Their buds are purple, and they flower the same day. The giant rain lilly is slightly larger.

Yellow fungus

Some sort of fungus growing on our shed step after a series of rainy days. The bright golden color caught my eye.

First National Starbuck's

Saw this in Bastrop, Texas a week-and-a-half ago.

Is the bank in a Starbuck's or is the Starbuck's in a bank?

(BTW, "Bastrop" is pronounced, "bass drop," as in a fish fall.)
