across the barren plowed cotton fields. The farmers are in much need of rain. We all are in need of
rain. The wind has been blowing so hard. It blew the back door open and half of the farmer's field blew into the floor of my laundry room.............I think I can plant onions there now..........
even Gertrude is having a hard time hanging on to her dress and sweater.
I need to put a spring dress and apron on her..........
don't you think?
Maybe a hat to make her look a little more
It looks to be another harsh drought for us this year. The earth is sun baked and hard packed.
Yet, through it all................
life and beauty spring up.
The thorned crooked mesquite woods are now in their prettiest green of the year. The air has a sweet fragrance from their blooms.
The dry and wind tossed prairie is covered in wildflowers
filled with buzzing bees and gliding butterflies. There is a sweet honey- clover smell that carries off of the blossoms and along in the wind.
I am hopeful that we might get some rain.............
yet, all around me,
ponds have dried up and local lakes are turning into mud holes.
It's the Texas I have known all of my life.
How about you?
Are you enjoying the shower of a rain...............or are you still under a little snow?
Are you as dry as we are?
What is blooming in your back yard?
I would love to hear!
