On the Hunt for Signs of Spring!

The weather man may tell us differently….but hidden under the thatch are some quiet hints about things to come..

No….not that!!!! I mean…

This….!!!!!

If you look very closely you can see spring at work!

A Touch of Fall????

You can always tell when fall is approaching. We begin to bring in the harvests in preparation for the coming winter!

It’s hard to imagine that the temperature will be cooling off but Mother Nature is starting her progression.

Fall Grasses!

The beautiful fall grasses are really coming up! They are a nutritious good source for so much of our wildlife!

Little Blue Stem

Silver Stem

And of course the BlueBell

Celebrating the First Day of July!

Here are some red, white, and blue inspirations for you to enjoy!

Indian blanket

Something prickly ( I’ll update when I know for sure…but for sure it’s prickly…probably don’t want to touch it!) I believe it is bull nettle (cnidoscolus texanus)

Texas Bluebells

Rain!!! Sometimes a Curse…But always a Blessing!

The ground had become so parched here with little to no rain since May! The ground began to develop some significant cracks!!!

The grass was shriveling up into thin, brittle, sprigs! This is when the threat of grass fires begin to enter the mind!

But with this tropical system sending some rain our way things are beginning to green up almost overnight. It has been a curse for some areas of Texas but a little bit of a blessing for those of us with pastures that support a herd.

First Day of Hurricane Season!

It wasn’t long ago that we saw three devastating hurricanes! What did I learn from those experiences?

1. Be more prepared than you think you should be…

2. Have a backup plan….

3. People really do come together when the chips are down…

This was #HurricaneHarvey’s track in 2017!

Please be safe during this unpredictable time and keep your hurricane guide handy!

Here is my first calf of the new year! He was born on April 5th! His mama is so proud of him!

It has turned into a beautiful day after a few days of wind, rain, and temperatures in the high 30’s!!! All of the cows are out enjoying the wildflowers!!
