Nature in Fredericksburg

Pin It

From these donkeys above, to the goats below, he’s now pointing to the animals above his crib, prompting me to entertain him with animal sounds and terribly off-key versions of Old MacDonald.

Fredericksburg is in full bloom, and the whole countryside is getting more alive and colorful by the day! Bluebonnets, Primrose, and Texas paintbrushes are beginning to pop up along the roads as just a hint to what’s to come.

Wildseed Farms, Willow City, the LBJ Ranch, and the Wine and Wildflower Trail are just a few of the wildflower hotspots we’re looking forward to this spring. I’ll have my camera ready!

We recently moved to the Hill Country in Texas and are so happy to be surrounded by so much beautiful scenery and so many critters! Here are just a few photos from our first couple of weeks.Texas Farmers Daughter - Texas Ranch - Alison Luther (2)

I kept seeing deer poke their heads out of this thistle field… except when I had my camera ready.

Elvis and Elvira were on the property when we got here, and they’re slowly warming up to us… especially when we have treats to share with them!

There’s so much room and smells for the pups to explore here!

There’s a creek near the house filled with turtles.  I got so excited when we spotted the first one, then started seeing their heads pop up all throughout the water.
