Cherry Blossoms, Wildflowers, and Broodmares
Posted on 29 March 2010
In Japan,Â the arrival of spring also means the arrival of cherry blossoms.The Japanese don't take this change of scenery for granted, they celebrate it with Hanami Festivals -- which literally translates to 'flower watching.' . Here at the ranch, we also celebrate springÂ and the homecoming of Texas wildflowers.Â Â I don't think there is a more beautiful place than Texas in the spring.Â Perhaps I'm a bit partial (maybe just a bit), but I believe God likes to stretch his muscles here in Texas in the spring.Â How can you beat acres and acres of wildflowers with bright, blue skies for backgrounds?
I think it is God's way of showing off.. [caption id="attachment_3326" align="alignnone" width="539" caption="Texas Wildflowers in our Pasture"][/caption] . However you welcome spring, do it in 'Culture Clash' style with Double D Ranch'sâ„¢ Tokyo Soul Shirt ... it's a nice mix of East meets West with cherry blossom embroidery on a very 'Texas' silhouette. . Speaking of showing off...I have to show off what my nephew Taylor is up to.Â Over spring break he built a new barn for his broodmares.Â Â He finished just in time for his first foal.
Isn't he something?. [caption id="attachment_3333" align="alignnone" width="575" caption="Taylor's Broodmare Barn"][/caption]
