It May Freeze Tonight, But

Our first bluebonnet!

Spring still insists on showing up! That’s right! Today the first bluebonnet popped its little head up along the road in front of the ranch.

Such fresh beauty.

And, like magic, Indian paintbrush were all over my drive! There are at least a dozen in our roadside bed, too.

Happy Indian Paintbrushes.

Lee has been asked to not mow again so we can enjoy the flowers. I don’t think the Vrazels will mow our pasture again for a while, either. They did just fertilize, though, and you can see green stripes on the ground. Maybe they planted something? I’ll have to ask them.

Can you see the green stripes?

I was pretty sure they were supposed to keep things organic, though.

I should have a medal for getting out and taking these pictures. The wind was awful!
