I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! I have been so busy though! I have several things to write about...some interesting...some maybe not. I love West Texas, it has a beauty all its own. (which I have mentioned before) I have written recently about West Texas, but I have more photos to share with you all! The photo below is of a local complimentary magazine. The front page is of the vast West Texas area, and the title is miles & miles of West Texas.
I love the wide open spaces, just like that song by the Dixie Chicks, wide open spaces are the heart of West Texas. I took several photos the other day while I was making a visit to the nursing home. This nursing home happens to be out in the country. And I came across a sweet little bunny that didn't seem to mind if I took his picture. He just sat & posed for the photo.Another beautiful site was a crepe murtle bush. It was so pretty, the blooms were a deep fushia pink color. It too was @ the nursing home. I love the blooms on these bushes because they remind me of lace so graceful & elegant.
Now that I have explained the beauty of wide open spaces I wanted to share the next few photos. Has anyone heard about the West Texas Windmill Farms? The windmill farms produce electricity for huge cities & other states like Florida. One farm is owned by Florida Power & Light Company. These windmills are 200 feet tall & the blades are 80 feet long. Just check out the photos below.
PS--(revision added) Okay I now realize that Texas is not the only state to have these windmill farms. I guess this is progression. But I am glad for all the jobs that these windmill farms have produced! I know that we all need our jobs! I apologize for putting my feet in my mouth!
Finally I have one new piece of art work to share. I have made a perpetual block calendar. I will be putting it on etsy soon. Let me know what you think? I am currently working on a little journal that will be full of birds, nests, flowers & all kinds of good things. I have so many things I want to do, but so little time to do them! Tell me where do you find the time?
Now one last little tid bit....we were at the lake this weekend & started painting the cabin. Here is Hubby hard @ work. Just a sneak peek @ the progress there.....also look @ the peach tree in the right distant back ground. Yes that is a peach tree loaded with peaches. We made homemade peach ice cream & it was wonderful! Yummo! We picked the peaches & brought them home with us.
The colors in the photos are a little strange. Not sure why but the last photo is more true to color, the house is mocha in color & the trim is rustic red. Hope you all enjoy the photos! Hope you all have a great week! Hugs to you all***Renea
