I love fall in Texas! It’s the best of all worlds! Warm beautiful sunny days coupled with nights that apparently get just cool enough to bring out some beautiful orange and red hues! No doubt, the fall colors here are nothing compared to the leaves where I grew up in Canada, but that’s a small price to pay to avoid all that nasty winter weather (freezing rain, sleet, blizzards… ick!)
Turning my mind back to lovely Texas weather… Here are some photographs I took this morning of around our farm:
Here is the peach orchard. What looks like round bales of hay are actually our fig trees! We used grass clippings (organic!) to cover them. Now they won’t die if we get a hard freeze. In a couple of years they won’t need to be covered like that, but for now they need a little extra special attention.
