Those darn Mesquite trees!

It was only a matter of time before those darn Mesquite trees would spring to life.  The rains these past couple of days only accelerated the process.



 Baby mesquites abound :(


One positive is that the rains also brought with them a lot of purple and orange wildflowers. Little orange flowers are a favorite of Ralph's, the official cat of Terlingua Dreams-Del Rio branch.



Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


Spurs Corner

All I can say is...what a great game guys!  Not an easy feat beating the Spurs of the East (Atlanta Hawks) Wow, Wow, Wow!  Go Spurs Go!!!

    1. Starkist white albacore? I don't even eat that...it is expensive!

      Little Ralph needs to get a job. Cat food has gone through the roof. Perhaps he can be a cat model?

  3. Several years ago I fell backwards off a small ladder holding a cannister of propane in my hands, and my head landed between two mesquite bushes. I hate those things, and haven't been back near the desert since. I got rid of that truck camper right quick as well.

    1. If I had experienced what you did, I would not have wanted to have anything to do with those darn mesquite trees as well.

      However, the desert is beautiful do not let those horrible trees keep you from it. At least in Terlingua or the places where I camp in the desert...they are few and far between...just not at mother's house :(

    2. Those orange flowers were everywhere along I-35 and 83 south of SA last weekend. I was hoping someone here would chime in to ID them.
