Do Mesquite Trees Lie?
I don't know about where you all live but here in south Texas we watch the Mesquite trees this time of the year although the tree watching is early this year. If they put on their leaves which is usually some time in March that is supposed to be a sign that winter is over. Some of the Mesquite trees are almost fully leaved out and some have few. The weather has been odd this year, well odder then usual here. We only had one real cold spell that I remember and it didn't last long. I'm not a Mesquite tree but I predict a very hot summer. Guess that won't be too unusual but I mean it will arrive earlier and hotter and maybe dry. We did have a good rain night before last and you may have heard parts of San Antonio had tornados which is rare. We just got back from a ride on our favorite country road and yep there they were in all their glory. Mesquite trees almost full of leaves. I don't like those trees because they have mean sharp long thorns. Hard on kids going barefoot in the summer in the 50's. They don't make a good leaf to shade with but people like to barbeque with the wood. We'll see if Mesquite trees lie or not.
