Spring at Fawnview Ranch

Wow... isn't Houston great in the early spring ?  

This is a wonderful time to stay at home and literally "smell the flowers."      I have decided that after being in this same spot for 32 years, it is as close as we will likely come to owning a few acres in the country. So I have now designated it The Fawnview Garden Ranch.

The front lawn is a work in progress since Saint Augustine has decided to present us with a good bit of decline.

Three yards of special mulch delivered from Conroe is supposed to help this problem.  Thank goodness for a cheerful helper as there are a lot of wheelbarrows in 3 cubic yards

This year, our resident Master Gardner has worked especially hard. And things were looking very nice. However, a number of plants, like our roses, are still just in the bud stage.

Of course there is a good reason things look so nice... it has to do with one of my favorite little stories; modified just a bit......

The stranger said "the Lord has blessed you with a beautiful ranch." And I replied...
"Yes, and we are thankful. But you should have seen it when he had it all to Himself.
