Texas Natural Beauty - Earth Day the Texas Way!


Photo taken 4/20/2015
Just one of the many scene throughout the Texas Hill Country that convinces me personally that we need to do more to help preserve the natural beauty of Texas for future generations. This is a 3-image panorama of a scene along a county road in the southern part of San Saba County. The larger size is at:

I really do not know how you can love Texas Wildflowers and not want to help preserve them for the future. I am not one for big government programs, I have more of the old pioneer spirit in me. I think we need to love the land, because we need to the land and what it gives us. We did not have a big farm or ranch when I was growing up in Texas, we only had a 3.5 acres. But my hands were dirty and blistered many times turning the earth in... our gardens in late January to get them ready for planting. We ate fresh vegetables from that garden and my mom gave away much more than we ate in canned fruits and vegetables from that garden. To me we need to do what we can to preserve what we love about Texas, not through huge expensive government programs, but through the efforts of everyone of us whether you own 5,000 acres or just a small yard in the city.

Please help keep Texas Natural and Beautiful! Support the conservation efforts of Wildflower.org, http://www.nature.org/, http://www.texasprairie.org/, http://npsot.org/wp/, many local nature centers, and Texas Parks and Wildlife programs to restore even parks back to their natural state. Plant native plants and create even small pocket prairies. Urge urban developers to use native plants and grasses. Every bit helps to keep Texas Natural and Beautiful
