Now that's what I call a rooster!
And a colourful picnic area.

Glad your fig tree is growing that fast and is already with fruit.
Don't forget trying to take them and eat quite from the tree ... it's an amazing sensation.

That second shot is great - looks like a scuplture.

Beautiful bird! Graet photo for the R. Have a nice day!

ArneA said...

The Boss of your Backyard?
Yes I can imagine. I hope you have your bedroom in the front so you can sleep as long as you want, but with that Boss walking around, .....? Hope the egg production compensate the tyranny

evlahos said...

wonderful choice for R. I really like the last one

Liz said...

Richard is a beautiful creature. He has that bossy look about him!

Ya gotta love Texas! Pretty bird. LOL... I would never go in the yard... without a stick! I have been chased more than once by these critters.

Richard looks nice and proud;)

TSannie said...

Wish I had a Richard the Red. He is one stunning bird!

Your Roadside Rest Area looks like the heavens have opened up squarly on top of it's roof.

Great R day!

Louis la Vache said...

Any thought given to turning "Richard the Red" into Coq au vin? The inquiring mind of "Louis la Vache" wants to know....

Your EG Tour Guide said...

WOW! Is every rest area in the Lone Star State decorated for Memorial Day? You Texans really know how to do things BIG! ;-)

mrsb said...

I love the painted picnic table area! As a native Texas girl (though I've been in NJ for almost 10 years), I miss seeing things like this.

I will definitely be returning to read more of your blog!

Daryl said...

Richard is very regal and the rest area is so attention grabbing. I love the storm clouds behind the shelter. Great R post.

mrsnesbitt said...

Richard is a handsome chap!

Catherine said...

Louis la Vache is kidding, I guess!
As french myself, I would take Richard as a Sport emblem. Ours is the the rooster, go and see our Rugby shirts. Richard would represent us with class! ; )
I also like the picnic area, which make a funny colored picture.
I answer to the invitation you made to Louis la Vache to visit your R. As I'm curious,.....

Nydia said...

So imponent this Red Rooster! The picnic area looks great with your colors. Just perfect again.
Kisses from Nydia.

Katney said...

Hey, are all of Texas's rest stops like that? It's cool.

Some Washington Rest Areas are very nice and most of them now have wireless!! Though I've not pulled my laptop out to check my blogs while traveling through.

raf said...

A round of royal Rs today! Richard the Red Rooster and a regal roost for resters. Very well done, Troy. Excellent photos as usual!

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

kbbryant said...

Neva said...

I thought rest areas include toliets! Is it as nice as the picnic area?
and I haven't seen a rooster yet....I had a rooster attack me as a kid so I am not a big fan of roosters!
My R's are

Blognote said...

I think Red Richard is magnificent, Troy. You did well making him the boss of your backyard, although wake-up calls at 5 o'clock in the morning...
I think your landscapes are also impressive. I like the rich colours and magnificent settings. "Photoshopography" can sometimes be an excellent solution to do landscapes like these justice! Thanks for sharing all these photos and I will keep in touch with you.
