Spring Is Here

Much nicer than all that drilling and fracking stuff on the other side of the highway is our driveway, after – caused by a wet January and February – the wildflowers are springing up like … well, like wild:

Frühlingsblumen

Driveway and Spring Flowers

The flowers, btw, are Bluebonnets, the State flowers of Texas. We’re expecting many more of those, and plenty of others. It’s a tantalising wait every year, if there’s enough rain during the winter months so that in spring the flowers, the seeds of which are always present in the soil, will come up. And this year we were lucky.

Talking of winter and spring: according to the calendar, it is winter still, but for the last three weeks it has been really spring-like, and yesterday the weatherforecast said that the overall weather pattern was summer-like already. Well, the temperatures – at 80 Fahrenheit sometimes – are clearly summer-like, even if not yet like the height of summer. Even now, at 11 p.m., it is still above 75.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Well, you’re living so far up north, aren’t you??!! 😉 But you should get some rain and then some green, too, I think. I saw on the news lately that you had another of those sandstorms. Hopefully njot too bad.

    BTW, your driveway looks quite inviting and Bluebonnets are lovely.

    Cheers.
