I love your new header! And I have never seen Indian paintbrush before - I can see why you like it so much!

Deb said...

Sounds like pure heaven to me. What part of Texas is it in?

I love your photographs! Texas is beautiful, isn't it? I love the Indian paintbrush and all wildflowers that are part of the Texas landscape!

Our pond won't hold water either....no rain and it almost dries up...makes me so sad.
I love the pictures!

Lovely peek!

Especially of more Indian Paint Brush and wild berries.

But!

"Ol' Auntie" has a worry. -sigh- Deer Ticks! They scare the knickers off of me!

Does the Deet spray, take care of them? Do you still have to check for ticks, when you come in? Or at the end of the day?

I know people who have been bitten, and I am terrified of them. -sigh-

You can stop laughing at me, now. lol.

I would so love to wander here and there on your beautiful property. Love the Texas state outline! What fun it must be to explore all the fields and woods, beautiful flowers everywhere. Soon you can show the little one all that is out there, how fun will that be?
