Needless to say the geese are already flowing back North, people are mowing their lawns because the weeds are growing (grass is smarter 😏) and
many trees are already beginning to leaf out
The one thing I haven't seen leaf out yet is the Mesquite tree. It's said around these parts that winter isn't over until the Mesquite tree leafs out. I have a saying too with my 40+ years of residency that winter isn't over until after Easter. This year Easter is April 16th.
I can remember years past...20007 to be exact when we had snow on Bluebonnets. I found that picture too! Hmmm...my hair was darker and I was "lighter" 😏. We didn't get a lot of snow but it was still snow! Easter was the first weekend in April that year.
I distinctly remember in 2008 having a near blizzard on March 6th. I say distinctly because at that time I was keeping the horses at my friend Teresa's about 15 miles North of town and I drove in it to go blanket horses!
This was the road to her house about a mile from it.
At that time Clyde was the only horse we had so the other two belong to my friend's daughter. They were pretty glad to see me!
We got around 5 inches that time. I'm not sure but I think it was gone in a few days.
Winter might be over but you just never know around here!
It's kind of like the saying "It ain't over til' the fat lady sings", well, it ain't over until the Mesquite tree blooms 😉.
Have a good one!
