Barn cats just come with the territory when you live in the country.
We love them and we haven't seen one mouse in our feed shed in three years!
And we store a lot of feed in our shed. :-)

This little girl was born in the spring litter of 2011
and we've watched her grow up.
She was named Reeses by the little neighbor boys 
that use to live behind us.  

More than the other cats, though, she has really attached herself
to our family.  The other ones come and go, 
sometimes we don't see them for weeks at a time, 
but Reeses thinks she lives her at our house. 

She evens puts up with Daisy. :-)


We love our bluebonnets down here in Texas. :-)
And we've had a banner year for wildflowers this spring.
Our highways are gorgeous!

We planted some bluebonnet seeds on our property
 the first fall that we lived here, back in 2010.
We knew it would take at least two seasons for anything to happen,
and sure enough, in the spring of 2012 we had some pretty bluebonnets
pop up in our yard.

This year we've had twice as many.  

The beautiful bluebonnet - state flower of Texas. :-)
