It's not officially Spring, but....
I've added photos and some commentary on them to this posting. New comments are in red. It sure seems that Spring has sprung around here. I'd noticed the redbud trees (picture #1) were in bloom about a week ago. Then I noticed a few daffodils. A couple of days ago, I saw that some of the wild Cherry trees (picture #2) were blooming too. This morning, I looked out the window to see that the pear and peach (picture #4) trees were both in full bloom, seemingly over night! (I couldn't get pictures of them in full bloom. If you take a look at picture #3 with Barkley and the pear tree, you may guess why. He apparently feels that any limb within his reach is a predator! Most of the blooms are already in the grass.) When I drove to the store a little later, there were a few Indian Paintbrush in bloom along the road side. They were a rather sickly looking pale orange, but they were there. Of course, the temperature has been in the high 70's for a while now. Tonight, my hubby saw a scorpion in the house! Definitely spring in Texas, regardless of what the calendar says. I guess I should be on the out look for snakes now. Of course, just because we have spring weather doesn't mean it won't snow or do something else winter like before summer gets here. After all, this is Texas.
