Mesquite makes excellent wood for cookouts and a couple of logs last a long time around a roaring campfire in Terlingua. However, seeing them bloom is not a happy occasion for me.
|I usually cut down the mesquite by our fence line but have not done so in the past two years so the poor horses my heartless neighbor has will one day have shade.|
For one it signifies the end of winter and secondly that sooner or later it will have pods and those darn pods if not raked in a prompt fashion only mean that more mesquite trees will start springing up. Only if you have ever tried to clear these pesky trees off of your property will you understand how difficult that is.
|There are so many new mesquite trees popping up. Counted over fifty in this side of the property.|
Last week I went to buy an electric weed eater and I have yet to assemble it. Need to do that soon or the weeds are going to get out of control. Have I mentioned how much I dislike yard work? Oh well, someone has to do it and I guess I’m the lucky one.
|This Mesquite has been hit by lighting twice and it refuses to die. Aren't I lucky?|
I would like to welcome a new follower to the blog Big Bend Inquirer. He writes a very funny blog http://bigbendinquirer.blogspot.com/.
Good night. May you all Terlingua Dreams.
