|Adding a tree to our tree-deprived neighborhood. I wanted a|
Magnolia, so he's putting one in for me. Actually, it's grown
considerably, but we'll be taking it with us when we move to the forest.
|After we remove the Magnolia to transplant to our land, I will|
have another fast-growing tree planted in its place.
This Magnolia is MINE and it will go where I go.

down the city streets, for fun. She was about 2 yrs old.
|Our wooded land - beautiful - lush - diversified and time-less.|
In suburbia, we are the yard champions. It is a small area that we cultivate and it is practical, yet still demanding. In the country, or rather, in the forest, it is nearly insurmountable, especially since we are trying to maintain the integrity of the forested land that we own.
Soon, we'll be on that lawn tractor every week and the experience of keeping the acreage looking healthy and homey will be pleasant. And any underbrush that is becoming unruly will be introduced to our goats. That's a plan I can't wait to implement. I can hear myself now..."Honey, you don't need the edger and the weedeater, just bring a few goats over and let them do their magic."

after seeing Martina McBride in concert. Awesome!
We do love the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo!
