A Peak at the Ranch

Minas Hill has been the site for our Easter Sunrise Service at our
deer lease... which we always refer to as "the ranch". On top of this hill a view of the land around is incredible.

The entrance to the area where we stay is always a welcome sight for us as we immediately begin to relax and prepare for enjoyable times. After we stay at the ranch, we all feel ready to accept the challenges of the week ahead and blessed with the comaraderi of our ranch family.

An aloe vera bloom is always lovely sight.

                                        Cactus blossoms are so beautiful as they open in full sun.

A field of thistles.  I opened the window of the truck to take this picture and could not believe the sweet aroma these thistles gave off. Don't touch; just smell!

I only wish I could tell you the name of this wildflower. They are everywhere at the ranch. It's so delicate and yet strong enough to survive the hot south Texas sun.

Oh Karen, I can only imagine how wonderful it is to have Sunrise Service on Minas Hill, has to be just so peaceful. Thanks for letting us in for a little peak, it's just an awesome ranch! There's nothing like being out at the ranch, right?

The pink flower looks like a poppy variety to me.
