Trees in bloom in February

Yesterday afternoon when we got home I noticed that the trees in the front yard had started to bloom, mighty early even for West Texas considering it is still winter and this is the month of February.


Mother's "Nosey Rosie" neighbor who lives two lots down has his trees in full bloom, not partially like us. They are beautiful...then again he is always outside watering them...as he keeps a watchful eye on what the neighbors are up to. :D


For now I am happy that those hideous mesquite trees are still dormant!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

  1. I don't recall what the mesquite trees look like, but what I can't stand are creosote bushes!

    1. If you put mesquite trees in the little box on top left of the blog, I have more than a couple of pictures of those horrible trees.

      We also have creosote bushes and I prefer them a million times over those darn mesquite which are almost impossible to get rid of.

  2. MsB:
    When the mesquites bloom, you can be sure that all danger of frost or freeze is behind you.

  3. Does that nosey neighbor see what's happening with Walter?
    I have iris and some bush blooming, always forget it's name. It's always the first to bloom here.

    1. No, our nosey rosie neighbor is too far down the road to be able to see the goings on in the corral.
