As odd as the sign in this pasture full of Longhorns that tells the passerby to "Put A Longhorn In Your Yard". Yeah, 'cause Longhorns in the front yards of Texas are as common as gnomes in the gardens of the Netherlands, right?
We are still experiencing the crazy, mixed up weather patterns around here. Most years in early to mid-March we get a few 'spring-like' days in a row and we joke that you better get outside and enjoy it because summer will be here by week's end. This year, spring has decided to stick around for nearly a month. And we are loving it.
See my tree? This picture was actually taken in mid-March and the leaves have filled out considerably since then.
This beautiful Wisteria grows along one of the roads I travel to work. The blooms fell off around Easter...but they were amazing while they lasted.
And this amazing display of wildflowers growing along the ditch bank at my third stop sign has delighted me for weeks on end!
These grow along the road opposite our property and I just know that Jim is going to mow them soon. So, I stopped and walked out amongst them to take a picture the other day, just so I could remember how pretty it is.
These beauties were an early spring delight, until the cows came home...then they ate them!
As much as I want to remember the sights and sounds of our amazing Houston Spring of 2010, I would be remiss if I didn't share the sight closest and dearest to my heart these days.
