More Ranch Scenes













The pastures are beautiful this time of the year. In places where there is plenty of sunlight the flowers seem to cover the landscape.

Wildflowers








This is one of the reasons people live in South Texas.... When we have wet winters and springs there are not many places more beautiful. These are just a few of the pictures I took on my trip to Mother's land on the Borrego Creek today.

Ranch Scenes

I've been showing periodic pictures of the oats growing in my food plots. Just look where it is now. It will soon put on seed heads.

I stopped to get a picture of this group of Yucca or "Spanish Dagger" plants that are blooming on the road in. The deer actually like nibbling on the flowers.

Lindsay is the "BEST"...

What does Lindsay do for fun on a Sunday? Well she enters an Ironman competition.
Sounds like something fun to do, right? She committed herself to a half Ironman.... That is go swim one mile in the ocean, then jump on your bicycle and ride it for fifty-six miles, then put on your running shoes and run a half marathon... thirteen miles and change. Two things I know about her.... She is very strong willed and she is the best athelete in the Poth Family. Yep, sorry guys, she has us all beat.

After all of that how can you have a smile on your face. That makes me think of a "Lindsay" story... When one day years ago, about six I'm thinking, Greg, her husband and I were riding to the ranch and he starts asking me about marrying this girl of ours. I remember telling Greg that it would make Sandra and me happy for them to marry. Then I also remember telling him not to ever ask her to do something that he didn't want her to try to do. I knew well that anytime she sets her mind to something you better just get out of the way because she will do her best to get it done. That is but one of the reasons we love her so. Oh, and by the way she is very well matched with Greg. She wouldn't be able to do what she does if it weren't for his help.
Yea Lindsay!

Spring comes to the Poth's front yard...

We have Indian Pinks and some Bluebonnets on the right front of our yard and.....

mostly Bluebonnets with some Sweet Williams, Daisies, and other assorted flowers on the left front.

What a girl!

Grammy, Grumpy, Kristi, Lex, and Miss Katelyn.
Everything tastes good.....


Whose having the most fun here?

Baby Einestein doing her thing. Turning pages with her right hand and playing music by pushing the buttons with her left foot.




Play time...




It is Saint Patricks Day and I'm going to get all dressed up.





I'm not sure about this thing on my head.







Don't I look cute all dressed up?






Pretty girl...

Bobcat


I bet the hunting is a little tougher when the rabbits, birds, and rodents you are trying to catch have lots of cover. This bobcat must live close to this feeder because the trail camera has picked it up numerous times .

My crop of turnips...


I always plant turnips in the fall on top of oat land I have planted. This year I grew some nice ones.

Spring comes to the South Texas Brush Country...






















Illegial Aliens





These three javelinas must have come in through one of the holes dug by coyotes under the fence. Although I spend lots of time covering and blocking holes they must have slipped in while one of the holes was open. I don't mind though as it seems like their number statewide are decreasing. I wouldn't mind having a safe haven for some.

#310 still needs a name...
