Late blooming purple sage

A year ago in the latter part of May 2012 the purple sage in the area had some beautiful blooms http://terlinguadreams.blogspot.com/2012/05/sage-is-blooming.html   not so much this time around.  Only the sage by Walter's corral where I dump the water he refuses to drink has blooms of any significance this year.

The on going drought, lack of rain and red ants have taken their toll on the trees as well.  Mother has lost three pecan trees...even though I might have had a hand in that when I decided to prune them when I was not supposed to last year.  But Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh....let's keep that little secret to ourselves :-(

Got up at 7:00 a.m. to put out the trash and decided since I was already up might as well water the trees even though I watered them last night.   Yesterday (Tuesday) we got to 104 and today we reached 103 degrees so I wanted to make sure the trees, shrubs and plants had plenty of water.

Decided to make an early run to town before the heat of the day set in.  Tonight I watered the trees as well... as I might not be able to get to them...what with the NBA finals starting tomorrow.  GO SPURS GO!!!!!!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


  1. In my opinion trees are very important. Can't ever have enough.

    1. I love trees especially in West Texas with our hotter than hell temperatures.

      In my house in Houston...not so much...they caused a lot of mayhem when they fell on my house during hurricane Ike.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you.
