Hi Everybody!!!
Get ready to be "wowed" with great fall color in my Autumn Leaves! Texas is not known for Fall Colors like the great places up North. However, we have a handful of trees that are spectacular.  I planted at least one of every great fall color tree here at Rainbow Creek! I bought most of them years ago, little trees for 5 dollars. They are big trees now and super WOW!  Enjoy!

Let there be peace on earth,

And let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth

The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father

Brothers all are we.

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me

Let this be the moment now.

With every step I take

Let this be my solemn vow.

To take each moment 

And live each moment 

With peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth,

And let it begin with me.
