YOU KNOW YOU ARE BACK IN TEXAS WHEN.....

....a snake leaves its calling card outside your trailer door. I 'm sure it was just a harmless rat snake but, nevertheless, I made sure that all doors were shut at all times.

........you can enjoy the hospitality of small Texas Panhandle towns who welcome travelers by providing a place to pull in for the night with an electricity and water hook up. Thanks Lamesa. We enjoyed sitting out under the large trees in the evening breeze.

.....when the roadsides start to look like this

......when signs like this appear on the roadsides.

.....and the best option for gardens looks like this. Yup, we're back in Texas alright!

  4. Eurgh! I hate snakes. But I love Texas - even in the drought. I'm sure you're glad to be home, but I've enjoyed reading about your adventures so much. You'll have to plan another trip!

  7. Welcome back to Texas, heat and all. I feel sure it's all going to change for us very soon. Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

  9. Hi--
    I wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your posts/photos of your English garden tour this summer. I've traveled some in England and there is nothing like English gardens. It was a treat to see some of the places that I've visited. Thanks for your lovely blog.
