November in Texas

I'm very proud of myself....Mark is out of town and I took these photos off the camera and loaded them to the computer without even a phone call to ask "how!"

Mark took these last Sunday.
The hibiscus blooming in our backyard.

The Satsuma tree in our backyard.....loaded with fruit! We've tasted some and they aren't quite ready! A satsuma is a combination of a tangerine and orange sort of.....they are a little tart yet, but they will be ready soon! Mark had to build braces under the tree to keep the branches from breaking under the weight of the fruit. This particular citrus, I'm told, dates back to the type of orange they would have had in Biblical times.

The piece de resistance! Mark's tomatoes! This was taken the first day of November, 2009. He is so proud of them and they have persevered despite the torrential rains we've had. I'm told (you know I don't like tomatoes!) they are really very tasty.......if you like them that is. What a proud farmer I have as a hubby!
