Well John went cow shopping this morning but he is aready back cowless. His heart wants to buy more cows when he sees the green grass popping up at the ranch but his body is trying to tell him to quit. He had told me he wants to to to Pearsall, Texas to see about buying some cattle tomorrow. Who knows what mood he will be in by then. Anyway spring seems to be here. We are supposed to have 70 and 80 degree temps this week. The trees are budding out, some wild flowers are blooming but I'm worried about my lantana. Several years ago I dug small plants up at the ranch and planted them all in front of my house. Every year there have been a pretty row of orange and they grow so much I have to cut them back. Maybe I cut them too quick and maybe they froze or maybe they got too much rain as they are native and we don't usaully have so much rain. In a few days I will mix a batch of humming bird nectar and store it in the fridge. I usually see the first scout on March 15th so I want to be ready. The weeds are doing well, not only in my yard but everyone's. My brand spanking new hoe doesn't work by it's self. I always thought Weed and Feed meant kill the weeds and fertilize the grass. I applied it twice and now I think it means feed the weeds and kill the grass. Well I better get off here and enjoy the weather. Summer cannot be far behind.
