Enjoying the End of Springtime

We have such beautiful wildflowers 
during the springtime here in Texas.
Just as soon as the early spring flowers 
start to wither and fade,
the blackeyed susans take their turn to be on display.

As we say goodbye until next season to the bluebonnets, 
wine cups, evening primroses, 
indian blankets, indian paintbrushes,
and queen anne's lace,

we say hello to the lovely blackeyed susans along the highway

and all over my yard!

I love to snip a few and bring them indoors for my kitchen table.

We'll be harvesting and curing our onions soon.

And, we have our summer garden started.

We have a few tomato plants.  
A roma.

A better boy.

And a cherry.

Some peppers.

And squash and cucumbers.

The chickens have been enjoying the pretty spring weather,
but not so much all the rain we've been getting!

"Mad as an old wet hen"
Yep!  I've been seeing a lot of that lately.
So I got them some treats at the feed store this week!

I hope you are enjoying spring's end!
Are you ready for summer?  
We are! :-)
