I’ve mentioned this before but I spent the first 40 years of my life in southwest Louisiana except for a couple of years in east Texas and just never knew there was a place that wasn’t green . . not just a dead-ish green, but bright, lush green. I moved from Louisiana to Kentcky, where it’s also nice and green, then to MO, where it’s also green then . . to central Texas where my friend says they have “potato chip grass” because it crunches when you step on it.
There’s a place for everyone but now I realize how much I needed and missed green.
Yesterday I was outside walking around and Vince asked me what I was doing and I said “just enjoying the green!” I don’t think I’ll ever take it for granted and each and every day, I appreciate all the green here.
Those trees above. They are so huge. You can see how much they tower above the two story house. There are three of them together and I love those trees.
Almost all the dogwoods in the area are finishing up their blooming and ours is just starting. Our blossoms seem more yellow than white. There seems to be several varieties that bloom yellowish white and some that are really yellow. I have the landscape plans here. I need to see if they say what variety this is.
It’s so nice to be living here!
