Terlingua continues to Bloom!

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not."


- Georgia O'Keefe


These past few days have been a whirlwind of color, of flowers, of beauty and warmth. Three days ago and yesterday I went on a walk in the desert to look for wildflowers blooming and I found such color and flowers. Some I have seen like old friends that meet again and others I have seen for the first time. It's amazing at the variety of plants and flowers that are blooming this year. I have posted some of them below. I am still waiting for my truck to be repaired so that I can drive out to my property and see what is blooming there. The mechanic said another week. But for now, I can enjoy the blooms within walking distance of the BB Resort property where I live.

Enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed the blooms. There are so many more to enjoy and the year is young yet. Stay tuned.

Thank you. I have been to Del Rio once a couple of years ago and I think it must be beautiful there by the water. I have heard good things about the area there. I hope you are experiencing the great weather that we are having here. However, we have been receiving some cold spells it seems every other week where it dips down into the 60's and then 40's at night.
