An Evening In Flower Mound Before The Full Moon

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

The Snow Moon is scheduled in the sky on February 5th. Finally, it appears winter is over and spring is on its way. People in Flower Mound enjoyed 60-degree temperatures Saturday night. I must say it felt too warm wearing a sweater! In this photo I took going home last night the moon was nearly full. One side of the street was dry, and some neighborhood streets had a sheen of black ice. From a local perspective it was a sleepy town by 7 PM. Where were all the people?


Here at the Riverwalk a handful of people were walking their dogs' wearing shorts. The midnight blue sky looked gorgeous along the river. 


Turning away from the moon in the sky and looking at the clock the sky changes to a lighter hue. Lights around a water view makes a difference. Midnight blue or light hue, it was still a warm and peaceful night in Flower Mound. My first shot looking directly at the moon was the prettiest blue for me.  I prefer the pretty midnight blue, how about you?


Traffic was heaviest in Southlake on the streets and in the parking lots at Central Market and Trader's Joe. They were as crowded as you would expect on the night before Thanksgiving with shoppers filling up their carts to the max. Central Market was adequately stocked but at Trader Joes most shelves were empty. I noticed eggs were a lot cheaper at Trader Joes for $2.99 for a package of 4 eggs. Brown eggs were more. Because people weren't driving Monday through most of Friday night, Saturday brought out the cars and people were grocery shopping! In Southlake and Grapevine, driving was crazy! The quantity of cars was ridiculous!

The Farmer's Market in Grapevine had a small turnout which was good enough for me. I prefer fresh fruit and vegetables over meat which I gave up in 1986 and stuck to that elimination ever since. Except of course, occasionally I still have chicken breast. I just don't know what I would do without the Farmer's Market! Vegetable soup is on my agenda. Yummy! What's your favorite? Fruit? Veggies? Or Meat?

Well, here it is Sunday morning. I plan to have a bowl of fresh grapefruit, one each of white and pink and a couple of oranges mixed together. I had a co-worker and friend (about my mom's age) in Maine who owned property in both Florida and Maine. When I visited her during her winter months in Florida, we would walk outside her back door and pick fresh grapefruit and oranges and mix them up for breakfast. I just love that combination but no stores anywhere compare to when the fruit is picked right off the trees! 

May you enjoy the full Snow Moon this evening, eat well, exercise and have an interesting and fun day!

Good morning Patricia. Flower Mound looks tranquil. Your mention of grapefruits reminds me of my father-in-law. He retired to Florida and planted two grapefruit trees. In a few years they produced more grapefruit than you can imagine. And we enjoyed them when we visited.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Wayne Martin - I loved that you shared this mouth watering story about your father-in-law. What a wonderful man he was. I could understand how much fun it was to visit him and experience fresh grapefruit straight out of the ground from his trees. Talk about pride and possession!

Fruit picked right off a tree, or vegetables picked right off a plant, taste a million times different than what we buy in a store! Yummmmmmy.

To answer your questions - I prefer the midnight blue, and I like fruits, vegetables AND meat.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Kat Palmiotti - I admire people who at least try to produce their own fruit and vegetables off their land. There is no comparison to store bought produce.

Midnight blue is so soothing and lovely to look at. I hope yesterday was absolutely beautiful and great in every way.

Good morning Patricia,

Great photos and love the back story on them. I love the midnight blue sky!! Hope you have a restful, interesting fun day! Happy Sunday!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - Midnight blue sky is heavenly. Many cities have way too many lights and they block the evening sky. But when the Town is mindful and permits installation of the right lighting that makes all the difference. 

May soothing nights be on the way for you to enjoy with peace and comfort.

Patricia it is good to hear Spring is headed your way.  I wish we could say the same here in CT.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

George Souto - I hope you can endure the rest of the winter and that you are hopeful for spring and summer. I have never been to CT. I've only had a movie view from the theaters or my television. I remember Chicago well. There was always too much grey sky. 

Hope. We can never give up on hope.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - these are absolutely stunning photos - thank you so much for sharing.  I am hopeful that I will be wearing shorts soon as I walk Captain. Yesterday he was wearing a coat and I was wearing two! 

Feb 05, 2023 06:11 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Lise Howe - it won't be long before you'll be wearing shorts again and walking Captain. I'm sure both of you enjoy taking walks outside. Having something positive to look forward to, is always strong motivation to follow through when timing is right. 

It must have been very chilly for Captain to be wearing a coat!

Gorgeous photos, Patricia. We only saw 40 degrees here in Charlotte yesterday, but are looking forward to 60's this coming week.

Nina Hollander, Broker  - I am sure you'll be experiencing warmer weather in no time. At the time of this writing (6:35 AM) in Flower Mound, it is already 53 degrees. When temperatures rise, everyone gets happy!

Enjoy your week!

Hello and Happy Snow Moon - admittedly, I usually leave my walks out and about to the daylight hours.  However, your photos certainly capture an idyllic scene.  Enjoy your day.  

Feb 05, 2023 06:27 AM
Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Michael Jacobs - Normally I get my shopping done during daylight. Traffic was so heavy in Southlake and Grapevine and grocery stores were so packed with cars, I made my last stop close to home at Market Street in Flower Mound. That first shot was seen from the moment I pulled out of the store parking lot and headed home. I saw that moon and the midnight blue sky and just had to stop! There were no other cars. The moon and sky was right. I had to take a photograph! 

Enjoy your day and the rest of the week!

Those are amazing Flower Mound scenes, Patricia.  I like the peaceful first picture, with that moon and stars, with the streets vacant of a single car.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP

Myrl Jeffcoat - Thank you! As soon as I pulled out of the parking lot heading home, I was mesmerized by the moon and midnight blue sky! There were no cars. I had to stop. I am so glad I didn't keep on driving or I would have passed a great opportunity. After taking that first shot with my camera, I just stayed parked and thought a lot about the last week we had with the severe winter warnings, no schools, no one driving, stores closed, etc. It was a good time to just embrace the moments!

You are such an excellent photographer. I sincerely appreciate your comments!

Patricia,  Your photos are fantastic.  I love the story you tell to go with the photos. 

Gheez, I may like Flower Mound more than I ever would have expected just by reading this ... and enjoying it at the same time. 

I do prefer pretty midnight blue!

You know I am a vegetarian.  I gave up meat long before I stopped eating fish and poultry 10 years ago.  No eggs for me either for 10 years. 

I am not much of a citrus fan.  My favorite go-to fruit that I can get all year round is the Fuji apple. As for veggies ... no way can I choose a favorite.  YUM for Veggies. 

I did not know it is a snow moon tonight.  I love to gaze at any kind of full moon. Tonight I shall do just that. Thank you!

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - thank you for the compliments that mean so much to me. 

I find it encouraging to know if I could peak your interest with my writing style and photographs, others would be intrigued too. Speaking and showing the truth, is the best way anyone in sales can survive. 

Isn't midnight blue just beautiful! I was very happy with how the photographs turned out. 

I don't eat fish. Never did. From the time I was a child, it never agreed with me. The topic of eggs and high prices is a hot topic these days. Shoppers have noticed and they are not happy!

I hope you got to see the Snow Moon. It was so bright and beautiful last night here and when I woke up earlier this morning!

Thank you for your comments that meant so much to me! Enjoy your day.

Endre Barath, Jr. - Taking photos of the moon is hard to do! The size of the moon was humongous! But I could never get that full size with my lens. I was very happy how the photos turned out and capturing the midnight blue sky was thrilling to me!
