Life On My Adopted Ranch

With all this rain in SW Houston there will be bigger bugs and skeeters soon. I am sure the fire ants are ready to harass us soon. It’s true, things are bigger in Texas. We love our friends in Texas, but truly miss the snow and Sierra Nevada Mountains in northern Nevada.

We currently live in a RV Park in SW Houston in the middle of a Black Angus Ranch. We sure love this set up much better than most RV parks. Our RV space was originally in between other RV rigs. Hubby said he hated it and asked the owner if we could move to a corner spot. Now we have fields and cows on two sides. We don't have to look at RV's anymore. Our travel trailer on the RV parks side has no big windows. Good thing, hubby was not happy. Always keep hubby's happy! This picture is an old one. I will post a better one later.

The cows and calves have been like family. Lots of birds here too. Of course, the Mockingbird (Texas state bird) is king and quite the bully. We had Cedar Wax Wing birds one year. OMG they are just so beautiful. They look like they have suits on. Anyway, the Mockinbird's chased them away every time they tried to eat the red berries off the bushes behind us. Those birds never came back after that. In addition, we put a feeder out for the Hummingbirds. We have a window that faces the feeder and I take pictures and video of those wonderful birds.
