and all around my garden spaces, and the sweet smell of all of this blows through the open door and windows of the house.
The evening primrose...........buttercups....... along the back ridge of the grounds are so sweet and fragrant, that they are full of bees.
Even a trip to take out the trash is pure enjoyment .
The prairie acreage of our farm is completely covered in bouquets,
and a thick carpet of flowers of every color. The smell is heavenly!
Even under the mesquite trees the flowers blossom.
Speaking of mesquite trees, this is how the woods now look............
going from the dark and grey barren, to the green and leaf filled.

One thing about mesquite trees is that their sap starts oozing out and dripping everywhere. You don't want to park your car or place your chair underneath a mesquite tree during this time. It is very sticky and hard to wash off. This tree bubbled and hardened in the hot Texas sun that we have been having lately.
The sap looks like orange marbles this way and is semi hard on the outside, but still soft and gooey.
How about you? Are you enjoying the blossoms and buzzing around you?
I would love to hear!
****** On a special note******
