You might notice the 'guard dog on duty' here at the Wild Bird Sanctuary. He is on high alert for Snow! On Wednesday it was a record 85 degrees and today, Friday, it is 33 right now. They say about Texas: "If you do not like the weather, wait a minute and it will change". This part of Texas has missed the ice and snow so far today. The weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful......With the magic of GoogleEarth, we will have snow on this blog tonight! Let it Snow!
*Reminder: Hempstead Bluebonnet Open House Christmas Party is Postponed until next Saturday, the 14th.***
The Snow is from our friends at G+ Auto Awesome Backup! Thanks for the Smiles
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It is a large evergreen shrub or small tree, grown commercially for its yellow fruit, and also cultivated as an ornamental plant. It was formerly thought to be closely related to the genus Mespilus, and is still sometimes known as the Japanese medlar. It is also known as Japanese plum and Chinese plum. In Japan it is called biwa. And in China, it is called Lo Guat (芦橘) inCantonese and pipa (枇杷) in Mandarin.
