Spring?

                                                                 Antique postcard from Graphics Fairy.

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?

Classic Cars

Yesterday was Motorhead Sunday at our church; two of our church members showed their cars alongside the ones from the classic car club, the chaplain of the car club preached, their quartet sang, then we had a bar-b-que dinner on the grounds.

It was a fine October day spent with excellent company!
