Texas Wild Flowers/ A Day At The Ranch

We took a drive out to the ranch to get the trailer so it could be put into the shop. 

It was a beautiful day! 

The sky was filled with huge fluffy clouds. 

This is the best spot on the property to build a house. 

Someone told me that we had the driest May in 90 years. 

 Five inches of rain is typical.  

We had less than an inch. 

The wild flowers were still going crazy in spite of that. 

I don't remember so may varieties. 

 They have sold off all of the cows and goats.


So maybe all these were nibbled off in other years. 

It was a relaxing day. 

The shop has called with the estimate for the repairs. 

It should be ready this week. 
We had mice a few years ago, so all the fabric and upholstery is going to get replaced. 
It is almost like trailer manufacturers find the ugliest fabric possible to put in these things. 
Rust colored palm fronds was the best at the time. 

I can't wait to work on this couch. 
I'll let you know how it goes. 
Thanks for having a peek at a Texas Sunday. 


  1. So pretty out there!! May was definitely dry but June is making up for it. Paul and I have talked numerous times about the fact that we have so many beautiful wild flowers this year. It's distracting while I drive. :)

  2. I have a feeling we're going to see a whole trailer redo! It's beautiful there and isn't it amazing, the resilience of wildflowers!

  3. Katie,
    Wildflowers survive even when there is little rain. One of the advantages of having wild flowers instead of cultivated ones is not having to water them. I am loving the slow start to summer heat this year and enjoy the extra rain we've had in June. Don't you love being out at the farm away from the hustle and bustle of the city?


  4. Beautiful shots!! Is it your family's ranch?? Will you be moving there?? It's so pretty!
