    Fire ants seem to have exploded around here, hardly saw any during the drought last summer, but now they are everywhere.

    One thing my wife and I have noticed, is the lack of honey bees, I have had 2 hives on my place, 1 for 6 years and one that showed up 2 years ago, both hives seem to have vanished. Waling around the flower beds and in the plum patches, hardly a bee when usually there so think you can hear them.

    Jim, I got a late start last year then the weather really hurt us. I'm hoping Mother Nature is a little better to us this year. I found some nice looking Celebrity tomatos the other day and I'm going to run to nursery over towards Pittsburg that is suppose to have some good looking tomatos on Monday, but I'm going to try to get what I've got in the ground today, and move my spot for Herbs over closer to the house.

    It was pretty windy yesterday so maybe it will be dry enough.

    Has anyone ever seen white bluebonnets? Okay, that's a bit of an oxymoron, I know, so maybe I should say white lupines in with the bluebonnets since they are both lupines. On a hillside (bridge underpass) in Bowie, Tx, there are white lupines mixed in with the bluebonnets. Everything about them is the same except they are white. I can only guess that the state provided seeds includes some of both types. There are far more blue than white, but the white ones really stand out. I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen them? If they are rare, I'll try to get a picture of them and post it here.

    We added about a football field to the yard Sat. Been finding scorpions when we are cleaning up, they are still sluggish but still scared the Lovely Wife. Letty and I are looking to get started on cutting in a garden, we are thinking of the north end of the hill. We took a few pictures of the bluebonnets and the kids.

    I am off today, going for some seat time mowing this morning. The rain is coming, heavy stuff still out west by Abilene and Wichita Falls. According to the radar Jinman and Western should be getting wet now with light rain. Flash flood watch till Tuesday night, forecast is 3"-6" inches.

    Ponds are full, lots of green grass. Summer grasses are just starting to come up, I'll be putting out fertilizer in a few weeks. More rain is on the way, hope this trend keeps up. I took my '56 White to a small tractor show Saturday, people are feeling much better about the weather, hoping to have good pastures and cut lots of hay if the rain continues.

    Not a drop here so far, The storm is West of Jim and I about a county and a half. I can see how this one will hand out allot of rain, the way it is moving NNE, it is running where the back of the storm follows the front somewhat.

    I have the high winds though, every bit of what NOAA says (40mph)

    An hour ago, we had 35 mph wind gusting to 55 mph. It's come down about 10 mph now.
