What it looks like on a Sunday in March

Welcome my friends to Buhlaland - a small bit of Texas and on days like this a preview of how heaven would be (for me at least). The wildflower is called a breadroot - apparently used by native peoples as a food source. The steers are in one of the pastures adjoining our property. The pansy basket is flowering with plants from last fall - enjoying the cold morning we had!






First rose of 2009 in our yard - a tiny blossom of our Jacob's Coat climber rose. Our silly Ellie goat - stuck in the fence - the goats do that a lot during the spring, things just look so tasty on the other side of a fence.













You didn't think I'd fail to put up some peeps pics - the one I'm holding already has wing feathers showing up - ah the babies grow up quickly. The peeps are out in their coop and I'm SOOOO glad. It was a good day on Buhlaland - fine worship at church today, delicious pancakes and sausage, some work completed around here and a very quiet day.

we are getting a few first roses too on our climber....and most all the trees are starting to leaf out, except the apple..its always late...its a Beverly Hills apple so maybe it has "attitude"

Aren't baby birds amazing? They grow up so fast....just in days it seems..

Your peeps are so cute! I'm jealous already. I used to have pet chickens when I was young. It'll be fun watching them grow!

Wasn't today absolutely glorious???

Lovely day in Texas, and it is always so pleasing to hear someone love where they are planted....as you seem to be there in your bit of Paradise.

Dani - I had to laugh about the Beverly Hills apple having an attitude - why not everything else "Hollywoodish" does?! Lanny we like long springs - but not COLD spell springs -SandFlatFarm - yes it was definitely a stunning day - started off so chilly here but warmed up beautifully.KathyB - I think my lack of memory helps - I often forget how bad something was ( I always tell people how healthy I am then recall - I've had several surgeries - take two medications every day and have acpuncture every 14 days - so maybe I'm NOT all that healthy and just think I am). At any rate - I do love it here - am grateful every day for being the caretaker of this bit of the world for however long the Lord has planned for me. Kathleen - no real fragrance to the Joseph's Coat - tenacity though - I tried to dig it out this winter (getting tired of dealing with messy climbing roses) and could not get that thing out of the ground!
