Every morning my dogs are eagerly waiting for me to finally get out of bed and immediately take them outside. The slightest delay while I make coffee or turn on my laptop will start the whining from the dachshund. If possible the Shepherd will put her nose under my bedroom door or at least lay against it loudly to remind me that she’s waiting for me, lazy bones, and I should hurry up ! When I emerge from the room she will run to whatever bedroom the Dachshund is sleeping in and stare at the door until I open it to free her buddy so she can accost him by putting his head in her mouth. They both will stare at me intently and watch my every move and try to telepathically force me to do their will. Usually I can’t stand the ultra high pitched whining for long so off we go. Here are some photos of what we see along the walk, with captions.
Today I almost beat the sunrise over the trees. It’s only low 70s right now but will hit mid-90s by noon.
On your left is the red dirt “pond” that only holds water as long as it keeps raining.
The Sky is really pretty today.
Looking north back towards the “hill” where dewberries grow in May and where we run and ride dirt bikes up and over and down.
Along the road we get wildflowers in the spring . I run on this road.
This part of the trail is very sandy and slightly uphill. It’s more fun running down .
Trying to get the mole they can hear but we can’t .
this is the much hated Yaupon bush that grows and takes over property all over Texas and is very difficult to remove .
The back of the hill. You can see the dead berry brambles.
The steepest path down the hill , also gravelly . No trouble for Ellie.
and back to the house. My husband made the fish . There’s a huge hornet nest by the door. Lots of them this summer. Hard to kill .
I hope you enjoyed our walk! Now it’s time to drink coffee and then start another busy day! Maybe tomorrow I’ll share some of the hundred different hummingbird photos I’ve taken lately . God bless you and keep you.
