Tumbleweed Love......


Do you see what I see?   Tumbleweeds galore...

Tumbleweeds, Cactus, and mesquite bushes....I saw PLENTY of them this past weekend..

Sam needed to make a business trip this past weekend to South Texas and he asked if I would like to go.   Of course!!!!!....was my answer.  

I really never knew that South Texas had so many miles of NOTHING!  One thing that I realized was that Texas is a much bigger state than what I have believed it to be...all these years.

I hear people say that they love the Hill Country...they love South Texas....They love the cactus and the rock!!! 

 (I) can not say that I even half way LIKE this kind of landscape and I would definitely not want to live there.   

Back to the tumbleweeds....It amazes me how these plants are rooted into the ground.  Rooted, well enough to absorb all that it needs to grow to be a huge, strong plant.  

And then....the wind blows and they are suddenly turned loose to blow wherever it is that the strong winds take them.   While they may be fun to see, most are unwanted and considered to be a big nuisance for most people.  


If we look deep enough.....We can always find some kind of goodness in everything.   Even the most wanted things are beautiful when given enough attention and love. 

I suppose I should have stopped and gathered a few tumbleweeds....I don't think anyone would have noticed if some were missing...

What do you think??

I am quite certain that the farmers would have gladly let you take as many as you wanted.

Haha, I'm surprised you didn't gather some! Recently the news reported a town in NM where the tumbleweeds were roof high. Can you imagine? City workers had a big job clearing that mess.

The Hill Country really is beautiful, but I've only seen it in fall, not winter. I'd imagine it looks pretty barren right now. I'd love to visit other parts of Texas some day.

Hope you are having a good week, my friend!

I haven't seen near all of Texas, but I have seen large parts that were lonesome and deserted, especially on the western side and the panhandle. East Texas is pretty. I haven't been to the coast. Tumbleweeds...I'm pretty sure they would not be missed if you could think of some use for them!
