Little Texas Grasshopper

When Kevin and I cleaned up the frontyard and put the Halloween decoration away, I’ve noticed this little grasshopper on the trellis. It seemed like, I’ve got a little helper. ūüėČ

Autumn Bees & Asters

November brings the nice, cooler weather into Texas. While it is still warmer in the afternoons, the honey bees try to get as much nectar as possible for the Winter season. The Texas Prairie, including our property, is covered with “Blue Sky” Asters at this time of the year. These plants provide food for all kinds of insects, birds and mammals. For us, it’s just beautiful to look at the light white/bluish dots in the grass.
