Spring in West Texas

I took these pictures Friday.  This is what our pastures look like right now.  

There is some green showing up, but it's not really spring in these parts until this start putting on leaves.

Awe, the lovely mesquite tree.  See those thorns?  Nasty.   

The rule in this part of the world is the danger of freezing is not over until the mesquite trees start budding.  We got close last week with a low of 34.   
AND - for us spring means some of these beauty's.  A sampling of this morning's time in the pasture.

Have a beautiful day.  

See ya.
