Springtime in Texas

I haven't posted in quite a while but wanted to share some pictures of springtime in Texas.
The view from my kitchen window. It's gorgeous this time of year, with the cross vine in bloom. Wish the honeysuckle was; deer have eaten it so badly it's just not doing as well as usual. I have to be more diligent with Deer-off this year.
The north side of our property. The copse of trees on the left is made up of smallish trees, but it's a lovely little shady spot where the hub keeps a bird feeder and birdbath.
The back of our house is a bit untidy--we've both been ill. Today, though, we'll be bringing plants out of the greenhouse and I'll tidy up at the same time.

A view of the field south of us, and of course my orange kitty, Max, eating grass. And, yes, he came right into the house and threw up on the carpet in the guest bedroom. He's obsessed with eating grass and prefers weed grass to the stuff I planted for him. Guess he's what they call a cheap date.
Another view of the copse of trees--and the honeysuckle. As I said, everything's untidy right now. I can't even show the front yard, it needs tending so badly.
 A view of the back property, the part we let go to weed. Don't the bluebonnets look gorgeous!
Another view of the back property.

And that's all for now. Happy springtime to you, wherever you are!
