We took about a l35 mile drive today thru Texas. We visited Bandera, Utopia, and Medina. Along the way we saw nothing but beautiful Texas rolling hills, ranches, grass and more grass.
On the way to Bandera the smell of freshly mown grass hit me, there was a rancher out on his riding lawnmower mowing his huge patch of property abutting the highway. The grass was about as high as an elephant's eye (you know they grow them big in Texas)
That smell hit me immediately, and brought back memories of playing kick-the-can outside till midnight and days of playing croquet on front lawns. Sprinklers spraying and snow cones dripping.
You see, in sunny ole' AZ we don't have acres and acres of green grass.......nor do we have these hanging out along the highway. (O:
I've heard it said that as you get older it just takes the slightest stirring to bring back a beloved memory.........this short trip has done that in abundance.
I really am a small town girl in a big town body!! (O:
Have a happy weekend dear friends,
