I went down to Texas for Thanksgiving this year – it was a good year! There had been a lot of rain and everything was fairly green, so I spent a lot of time walking around with my (new) camera. (Thanks, Grandma!)
The horses were lapping up the leftover liquid from our honey baked ham (who knew?) and Sawyer and Eric were wrestling a little bit.
The cows came up in hopes of a Thanksgiving feast themselves.
Out in our old corral, it turns out we have a bit of a butterfly garden! The monarch butterflies really loved the lantana.
And the little red flowers, which I haven’t seen bloom in a couple of years. Same for the morning glories in the bottom right-hand corner – El Nino finally brought enough rain for the flowers to bloom.
This butterfly looks like a leaf, which was very cool.
More morning glories and a little grey butterfly on the left. The yellow one on the right – those butterflies would not stay still long enough for me to get a good photo of them. They move so quickly!
And finally, a little spider from the pond on western edge of our property. They’re everywhere in the brush – I’m always having to brush their webs out of my hair.
