The patio is not the only attraction in their back yard.  Night after night we cross this bridge over Wolf Creek that separates the Golf course of Dallas from the homes around the border of the course.  Winter snows are rare in Dallas.  In anticipation of an photo-op I brought my camera on one of our Husky dog walking evenings and snapped this view in the fresh snow.  It is a certified National Wildlife Backyard environment and you just never know what you will find back there.

Wisteria, Ajuga, Mountain Laurel, and Redbud!
