Spring?

According to Merriam-Webster, Indian Summer is “a period of warm or mild weather in late autumn or early winter”.

Is there a term for early seasons?  Here in North Texas, we have a lot of early springs (usually February), early summers (beginning in May), late summers (100+ temperatures lasting into early September) and mild winters with just a sprinkling of bad weather and temperatures below 20 degrees F.

The Hen Bit and dandelions are in bloom, there was a robin in our yard last week and today we have the air conditioner on.

It might as well be Spring.

September

Ah! September.

What a relief in Texas. August is behind us and we have hopes of cooler weather before long.

Bluebonnet time in Texas


Spring is here officially and this is the time of year when God graces us with bluebonnets.

What’s better than an old truck and a field of wildflowers?

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;

Praise him all creatures here below;

Praise him above, ye heav’nly host;

Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Amen
