Rob Bessie Welder RV Park
For the first time since this blog was started, there will be some outspoken straight forward comments about how I feel about an issue.
Tioga George, http://blog.vagabonders-supreme.net/, and I have both received comments from folks complaining that our blogs are not interesting enough any more or at times not worth the bother of reading. I am certain every blogger gets those emails on occasion. So let me put it to those folks very straight forward. Get off your couch potato backsides and create a blog of the type you like and let us enjoy it. At least George, TheOFM and many others, many who are listed on Hitchitch.com, are doing something. Maybe it is your turn to add some interest and value to this world.
End of rant.
Spring is trying its best to bust loose around here in south Texas. Our official first frost date is December 27 and the last frost date is January 26. Therefore winter is officially one month long. There is 27 more days but the flowers and trees are not waiting a moment longer than they have too.
On one of my walks around the park today, it was very apparent that Mother Nature is not piddling around about getting ready to burst loudly onto the scene at the first opportunity. The mesquite trees are setting small leaves and vigorous growth into action. The grasses in the area are greening up nicely and the oak trees have buds swelling.
Yesterday at Padre Island, the beach was fairly busy in spite of the cooler temperatures prevailing. There was a fellow in shorts and tee shirt riding a bike on the beach.
Folks were laying out on the beach enjoying the atmosphere. And TheOFM was wandering around looking at what ever happened in front of him.
A good bit of time was spent wandering the beach searching for a complete sand dollar. None were found. So a new idea came in from the fog of my simple brain. Check out the sand dunes.
While meandering, remember OF Bob anointing me one of the Meanderthalls, it was noticed that spring was imminent at the beach. These cacti had small bumps where they will be setting fruit in the very near future.
All along the couple of miles of dunes of meandering done were flowers blooming in anticipation of the coming wild flower party in Texas. It is a sight to be seen. The flowers are still small in quantity, but stubborn in blooming early. This shrub had small buds splitting the outside of the bud. It is awesome to watch nature at work.
There were over fifty pictures taken of flowers in the dunes. It was a labor to cull them down to these four. Please enjoy them.
For every flower seen there were thousands of buds straining at their restraints.
Another year comes to a close. With it comes a new year with more opportunities to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
