Thanks for sharing those photos, the flowers are beautiful and the kitties are so cute.  The calico looks like the one I have.  Stay dry!

All the pictures are beautiful, the crepe myrtle is my favorite.

Although we have hot, humid weather here in Texas, we do get great vegetation! If you need a job here, buy a lawn mower and get to work!

Deb, Those are too cute.  I love the pictures of your helpers on the tour.  I mean the kitties not the yellow jacket.

Hi Hon-These are really great pics. I think you've certainly got the hang of your camera. Aren't you glad you planted the garden area and the crepes? Time takes care of the bringing out the beauty. I see my password. -S

HI DEB!

What an awfully green yard for Texas.  With such heat, one would think it's difficult to keep green grass.  Your yard is beautiful...I bet walking barefoot in the grass is simply heaven!!

Have a slammin' week!

While I enjoyed the pics, I don't enjoy the yard work associated with it.  I wished I had the powers of I Dream of Jeannie to make it go away...all 1.5 acres.

What a green thumb you have.  I'm jealous.  Love the purple flowers.

Posted by Kristin Moran, San Antonio,TX - Real Estate - 210-313-7397 (Owner - RE/MAX Access - KristinMoran@Remax.net) about 10 years ago

Tiffany, Thank you. I love them.

Vickie, He does follow like a puppy. He is an "in your face" kitty. I love him.

Karen, I love that I can have the animals. I wish I could handle more.

Carol, A couple of weeks ago everything was burning up!

Julie, Thank you so much! It is beautiful out here. This is why we moved from Dallas.

Lenn, Those bees are huge! They didn't care what I was doing as long as they could "pollinate".

Liz, It is a little bit of heaven when it's cool enough to enjoy it!

Crystal, Thank you Crystal. I love dogs too. And, squirrels, and fish, and raccoons, and...

Debbie, I can take no more credit than to have planted them! The kitties?? Well, more credit there.

Marchel, The Yellow Jacket was pretty nice too! There were several of them. They didn't notice me.

Teri, Thanks Teri. I love the trees. We try not to cut them unless we absolutely have too!

Russell, Who's selling her house? I could show it if I knew! Let me know.

Susan, You're a doll.

Jenn, The cats think it's theirs and I'm their help...

Scott, I love you too.

Yvette, I hope you and yours are doing wonderful. I would take a real walk if you would come see me.

Latonia, I understand. We have 5 acres and only mow about half. It's still a lot!

Dale, I gave them your petting and they sent their thanks! They said, "purr."

Kristin, Don't be jealous. I will take lots of pics!

Thank you all. Later in the rain~Deb

I love your kitty Enero ....reminds me of my wife's  cat "Lillybean" .  They both look like they fell in a bucket of paint! LOL

Posted by Trey Thurmond, College Station , Texas Homes (BCR Realtors) about 10 years ago

Deb, Gorgeous flowers, soon ours will be history, boo hoo. Kitties are cute, I have 3, and one is a calico too, name is Chloe, she likes to fight with our 2 males......a regular hissy fitter.

Posted by Jacqueline Tolstyka, Realtor - Selling Beautiful Northern Michigan (Coldwell Banker Schmidt Realtors) about 10 years ago

Trey,Enero is quite a kitty although Desi is too! It's hard to believe we have the ability to love animals soooo much! They are like my family...okay, close.

Jacqueline,My bougainvillea is just beginning to bloom. It peaks in December. I'll take a pic for you! Are you getting all your winter clothes out? Hum. I think I'm jealous and I don't know why...

Later in the rain~Deb

Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) about 10 years ago

Deb, I enjoyed the tour of your yard.  Great pictures.  The flowers were nice, the bee was a great shot, but I loved both of your kitties.  5 acres is certainly enough to keep you busy, especially now that we have gotten some rain.
