Indian Blanket With A Twist

We have a huge crop of Indian Blankets at the farm this year and ya”ll know they are my favorites. Yesterday I spent hours taking photos and simply soaking up the beauty. I was walking in a pasture and found this little beauty growing around some rocks. She was just a little different than most […]

Mexican Hat Wildflowers

Because of all the rains last month we still have a few lingering wildflowers. This month the Mexican Hat flowers have been in abundance. I really have never noticed them very much, but this summer they have become a favorite new flower for me. It is a form of the Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida Columnifera). Don’t […]

Cowboy’s Bluebonnets

We continue to be busy, but Cowboy snapped these bluebonnets with his phone a few days ago. Love it when he does that for me. Thanks Cowboy! I am hoping to get some good shots in this week, however rain is forecast for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday so we shall see. Make no mistake- we […]

First Bluebonnets on Easter

Happy Easter! Our first bluebonnets bloomed this week. They are exquisite in their beauty and so welcomed. Spring is really here and we are being rewarded by an abundance of wildflowers. They are going to be beautiful this spring since it is our first year in over five years to actually have moisture. It makes me joyful […]

Sunday Sunflowers

We did not plant any sunflowers this year expecting the continued drought to dry up anything we planted. Who knew we would actually have some summer rain? Had I planted sunflowers they would have been thick and bountiful! That is how it is on the farm; everything is a planting gamble! Have a few “wild” […]

Indian Blanket Beauty

Our Indian Blankets (Gaillardia) are drying up this week much to my dismay. These wildflowers are at the top of my “love” list and every May and June I enjoy their color at the farm. The colors are brilliant. I love the vivid red, orange and yellow combination. They pop up every spring and are found […]

Bluebonnets Are Blooming

The bluebonnets are finally blooming. Maybe my expectations were too high, but the farm bluebonnets are not very spectacular this year. The flowers are plentiful, however they are very small due to the continued drought. They just do not have that special “punch”.  Yesterday I decided to hit a few country roads in search of a few bluebonnet patches. I […]

The Promise of Spring

No one can relish the signs of spring more than me. The first glint of jonquils peeking out of the soil searching for warm sun to pull them upwards is always amazing. Longer days. Warm breezes. Warmer nights. Rain Showers, Budding leaves. Light jackets. New farm babies. Flip flops. Working in garden. Preparing yard. Spring personally brings me […]

I Had Intentions

“Spring Break” is next week and I have an extremely long list of items I want to accomplish. Things like: finish trimming under the oaks, working on my new flower bed, painting the barn and well house doors and give the corral a new coat of metal paint. Fertilize and put down sticker pre-emergent. Put sulfur […]

New Mexico Really Is Enchanted

Growing up I used to visit my grandmother in New Mexico. She was Dean of Women at New Mexico State University. We traveled to see our “Momo” every summer and those times are filled with very happy memories. She was a wonderful grandmother and our times were treasured when visiting New Mexico. New Mexico holds […]
