Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, Seguin, and Canyon Lake, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.

Every year, my organic garden in Cibolo looks different. Not only do various plants survive, grow, die, or get planted, but there is an ever-changing parade of birds, animals, and insects. This spring, we have not seen many ladybugs. This is a shame, because one of the antique roses and some of t...

This lovely home made some home buyers very happy, with its updated interior and lovely swimming pool!

As I walked around the garden the other evening, I saw that the bunny rabbit who has taken up residence there was out and about. I took several photos of him, and he came quite close to me in his quest for grass. Check out the long eyelashes and whiskers! The bunny can eat as much grass and as ma...

I never used to like buddleias, for some reason. But I have been won over by the fact that butterflies like them. That's probably the reason buddleias are commonly called butterfly bush. Plus, I'm attracted to miniatures, and each buddleia flower is made up of dozens of mini-blooms, like a bouque...

The charm of Alamo Heights, San Antonio's Beverly Hills, and the convenience of all-new, updated decor come together in this lovely home. Residential development in Alamo Heights began in the 1920s, so many of the homes are set on pier-and-beam foundations and have asbestos or wood siding. This h...

This lovely home is ready to welcome new residents. The seller raised his family here and is ready to downsize and start a new chapter in his life now that his children have grown up. He will miss his neighbors and summer afternoons with friends and family, out on the deck or at the picnic table ...

The roadrunner returned to our garden a couple of weeks ago for a brief visit. He (or she; you can't tell by looking) hopped up on the deck, probably to look for any anole lizards that might be sunning themselves along the railing. I managed to get one photo before it took off again, a close-up ...

I have seen this guy around the yard for a month now. He doesn't seem to be very afraid of me. He lives behind the compost heap in the corner of our yard, near the vegetable garden. This morning I saw that he'd made himself a nest in some leaves and brush and was napping. Later in the afternoon, ...

This home is in one of my favorite neighborhoods near the South Texas Medical Center, UTSA, and USAA insurance headquarters. Everything you need is nearby, including the brand-new, expanded HEB supermarket and Huebner Oaks shopping center, as well as lots of great places to eat (like Aldo's!). It...
