To be perfectly honest I don’t recall the events leading up to my walk last Wednesday, April the 8th. I just remember I walked late and my sister was with me. Which was a little sad because I knew it would be the last time she joined me for a walk in quite some time, she is headed back to Wyoming, her home, after wintering in the south.
Here is what we saw.
FRUIT! On MY trees! I was excited beyond words! I planted them last January, covered them when it was cold, watered them when it was dry and fertilized them according to variety and diameter. Oh, and my friend Amanda came over and pruned them for me because the very thought sent me into convulsions and even witnessing said pruning required a stiff drink. It was like chopping off my child’s finger.
But hey, it worked!
I’ve also been trying for several years to re-establish the bluebonnents we had when we first moved here. My husband gets a little ‘mower happy’ each spring and wipes them out. 60 dollars and 2 years later I’m still trying to convince him to just leave a few for seed. It has been long, hard work but here is the Texas state flower again in my yard…….
Marriage is hard sometimes.
I love them both.
Thanks for walking with us today!
