4.4" of rain at the ranch!

This stock tank caught the most runoff. All of the others at least have a puddle so it's a start.

The rains finally came...

Rains Friday and Saturday amounted to about 3.5 inches at last check. I haven't been inside the ranch to see if the tanks caught any water but the rain was a blessing for sure.

Where do all the alligators go?

Have you ever wondered how alligators have been around for thousands of years? Here is evidence of one of their tricks. During the winter when it gets cold they dig a hole in the bank and stay inside where it remains about 68 degrees. The same is true when their water hole dries up. Above are pictures of one's doing just such at one of my stock tanks which is the last standing water on my ranch.

One of the last blooms.

This is one of the last cactus blooms. It's also one of the prettiest. We are in a terible drought, can you tell?

My partner............... helping with the driving.

Ella thinks she needs to help with the driving. I have to remind her that I can't see the road when she does this.

Pretty Blooms

Cactus flowers are in bloom. It is really a pretty sight. Look underneath at how dry is is though.
