Go fly a kite or kiss my ... What?!!!!!

Well, I bet that got your attention! Get your mind out of the gutter! Shame on you for thinking this isn't a PG rated gardening blog! This is just a post on what we do for fun out here in West Texas while we are waiting on rain and the plants to start greening up.

We fly kites in 30 mph winds.

We hope the kids don't fly too far. However, if a big gust should take them away we know our neighbors so they would return the kids pronto. Ha Ha

Also, we feed the pet donkey bread and give him some kisses. Jack is his name by the way.

Yeah, he knows he is cute.
But seriously can you see how dry it is out here? You may have heard about all the terrible wildfires out here recently too! So we are doing two things:

First, as Kiley says we are praying for Jesus to send a rainbow and rain to make all the black green. That is what she told me when she saw all of the black burned land.

Second, we are taking a trip to see water! Hey, if the mountain won't come to you, you go to it (so to speak)! So off we go down south!

Everyone have a fantastic weekend! Enjoy your gardens!


  1. Have a great trip Kelsey! Yes, we could use some rain here too! It's been dry but at least no wildfires around here. Children say the most precious things, don't they?!

  2. I love kites and it has been so long since I had one and tried to fly one. Thanks for sharing. Richard at My Old Historic House

  3. I sure hope you get rain soon. We had a horrible drought here for three years and it is just no fun with all the water restrictions. So much fun to fly kites. I used to do it all the time growing up and then with my kids.

  4. I hope you get rain soon! I know what it is like when things dry up :(. Cute picture of your girl kissing a donkey - I showed it to my kids and they said they want to give him a kiss too :).

  5. I love Jack! And I do pray that rain is coming your way. Your idea to fly kites in the interim is pretty darned fun, I have to admit :) ~diane


Would love to hear from you!
