After the Snow on Dec. 10, 2008 on Dec. 20, 2008 I went out to the wild flower garden in the yard and was amazed at what I found. Here are some pics. I wonder what it will be like in the spring. In East Texas you never know what you will find in the yard.
We had a party for my Mother's Birthday today. This is a picture of my sisters, my mother, and myself. From left to right: Mary (the youngest), Me (the oldest), My Mom, Linda (the next to youngest), Debbie (the next to oldest). This picture was taken in my mother's front yard under a Magnolia tree. I am older than the tree.
I was out and about today on the property. I found a few summer flowers still blooming. We have had a couple of cool nights (by no means cold) so I think summer is coming to an end. I will enjoy this last few flowers for a few days I hope you do too.
Just recently the Crepe Myrtle next to our parking place finally bloomed. It was very green but never seemed to bloom it is actually white.
Tom and I are doing well. We are looking forward to some rain from Hurricane Dolly. Fortunately that is all we are getting from this storm -- a little wind and a good deal of rain. Hope all is well with everyone.
Yesterday I was out in the yard walking around. I stopped by the wildflower garden. We had planted some Texas Bluebonnets. They did not bloom while the others bloomed. We assumed that they had been planted too late. I guess we were wrong. Here is a picture of the bluebonnet I found blooming along with a couple of other flowers.
