In my hand.......soft and warm......new farm babies have arrived

I was able to only take a couple of photos of these sweet 
little kittens
until Belle, the cat I have told you about in recent posts,
caught me......and did not approve.  
She had 8 in all!!  One died from her accidentally lying on it,
but still there are 7, that I need to find homes for.
And after she caught me taking photos.......she moved them all
and I have still not found them!  However,
she now has gained trust in me and allows me to pet
her.  I hope she will soon bring her kittens so that I can tame 
them for new homes.

Spring is upon us.....with my daffodils making the announcement first

The bluebonnets....Texas state flower.......fill the roadsides in their
brilliant blue and white waves

The woods here have turned green and the floor of the mesquite woods
is full of white miniature daisies

so full and white 

in little bouquets. 
then, there is the ox-eyed daisy......much larger with a pretty scent...
growing in bouquet clusters

on the other side of the woods.........in the prairie/meadow
it is a full carpet of yellow daisies that one can smell the fragrance from
yards away.  
These daisies are large headed and rugged enough to grow in almost any 
kind of ground

There are actually a lot of different yellow daisies here......
pretty dainty petally ones

long skinny and bright ones

the only red vibrant flower here is the Indian Blanket.
It is such a lovely flower

most abundant here is the Prairie Aster, growing in thick rows along the grounds

this little dainty purple flower has the prettiest leaves

and most would call this flower a weed.........
but for me.......it is a flower........
they all will always be a flower!
So tell me.........what is growing in your backyard!
I would love to hear!
