Hope you love the flowers as much as Roy and I do, and I just want you to know that my life was in danger while I was taking these pictures  standing on the side of a busy highway.  Just so I would have something blue to post, (if you are believing this story, call me I have more to tell you).

LOVE YOU ALL……”BLUE” GOAT LADY

I don't know the yesterday, today, tomorrow plant. It's pretty.

We drove to Dallas for Easter and saw lots of bluebonnets on the way! Lovely!

Barbara, thank you for risking life and limb to share the bluebonnets with us. They are so beautiful.

I, too, have almost been blown away by 18-wheelers while taking pictures on the side of the road (well, not literally, but it felt like I might be ... lol).

Barbara... you have Blue Bonnets! We have none so far! Guess that means we won't have any as we usually get them first... but they require "rain" and we haven't had much lately! keep praying for us and rain...

As for Canton... we're still waiting to see if I can schedule the vacation time for the end of May... I'll probably go straight to Dallas though - I have 3-daughters and 3-grandkiddos there that I don't get to see enough. Thanks for your sweet invitation... We think we'll get a hotel room close to Canton and plan a dinner and get together so we can all get better aquainted!

Maybe I'll just come visit you in "goat land" for no reason at all someday soon!

blessings. Dixie

Love your bluebonnet photos; this is a good year for them! If you aren't busy this weekend, head north on 45 and check out our bluebonnet festival here in Ennis! It's just a nice drive for you, not really that far.
I've got to read on and see if I can find the story behind your blog name!

Hello Barbara, I am so late getting to my comments today. Idol and the Dancing result. I am hooked on these two shows.

Your flowers are so pretty. I think purple and blue are both acceptable. How many blue flowers are there anyway??? The blue bonnets are awesome. They are amazing how fields of them grow in profusion. I have only seen photos of them but I so want to see them in person. Someday. I am glad you survived the photo shoot. There is a gorgeous mountain home with a lake and beautiful landscaping that we pass everyday, and I can't take photos because there is no place to pull off the road. One day I WILL find a way. BIG smile

I am thinking about your baby goats. They are so adorable. Show us some pics soon.

Barbara, I have tried to add you to my list of faves and I haven't been able to do it. I have typepad and I have a friend who will help me but she hasn't had time. I WILL get it done. I love your blog.
Don't give up on me.

Hugs...Jeanne
