Fall At The Ranch

Fall at our place isn't spectacular, but here it is.

Bur Oak - the last to leaf out and the first to drop its leaves.

I cannot remember the exact name, but it is a daisy and deer resistant. That particular butterfly loves this bush. You don't see them when walking towards the daisies, but when you walk up, hundreds will fly off

A scissortail nest.

A lone sweet william holding on.

Hummingbirds love this one. You'll see many a fight after one of them has staked out his territory over this vine.
A few gourds are not yet ready to be cut. Normally, we do not have grass by this time of year, but we've had an extra wet fall.

Cabbage in the garden which has been attacked by a green worm. I did not check the cabbage for about a week since we've had so much rain. It was a mistake because the little worm turned the leaves into lace. lol

Look at this: broccoli growing. I've never seen broccoli except in the produce department. I'm all excited.

Until next time, God bless.

Lynn, there's something special about Texas light. I love the pictures and didn't even see the butterfly until you mentioned it. Just in case I forget to say it, I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful and that you continue to take pictures of your place, which might not be inspiring to you, but they are to others (like me).

DJan, you are so sweet to say that. I love my state, wouldn't live anywhere else; however, we do not have what might be called a glorious Fall. lol Nevertheless, I love Texas.

I love the photos of you ranch, it is beautiful to me. I've never seen broccoli in the field before either, it looks so good.
