In a beautiful display of what nature has gifted the Texas Hill Country, Terry “Tex” Toler (writer, photographer, conservationist, and longtime proponent of all things Texas – Llano in particular), shared a video on his Facebook page of a segment that CBS Sunday Morning aired as its closing montage. Including bluebonnets blooming, robins chirping, and butterflies lighting on wildflowers in lovely Llano, Texas, it was both poignant and peaceful as we enter into the “new life” season of spring.
The show, hosted by Jane Pauley (who has taken over for longtime host Charles Osgoode), regularly sets out on Sundays to provide quality reporting on performing arts news stories coupled with interviews focused on integral figures in pop culture, art, politics, as well as entertainment. In a departure from the norm, this network Sunday morning show has a different pace, providing a quick update of the day’s news and national weather before going into its lengthier topics on the subjects identified above. In the show’s signature closing, they frequently reference interesting, relatable, not to mention soothing Sunday fodder in video form to wrap up their broadcast, and this past Sunday, it caught Toler’s eye specifically, being filmed in Llano.
