The Flower Garden

Puckerbrush flower garden -such as it is.

My flower garden ain’t much to look at huh? Under the drip from the fresh water fill on the NO Princess Palace gives it just that teeeny edge necessary to survive in this harsh environment.   I got an irritating habit of forgetting the water is on when I fill the tank and many times there is some blow by.   The wildflowers herald the start of Spring down here in South Texas and today was the first day to swap over to the summer uniform.

Rambling Around III....

Tuco the Dog being Small

Every morning just when it is starting to get light, my little visitor shows up. The little hummer gets here about the time I am thinking about turning off the lights and before Tuco the Dog cracks an eye open. I missed him several days during the first part of the week. I figure maybe the 60mph winds blew him down around Jacksboro somewhere and it just took him awhile to get back.

I collected quite a bit of grief because  I admitted the other day that I watched Dancing with the Stars.
