Gotta Love Those Winter Trees
There is something very special about winter in the Texas Hill Country. The terrain maintains a subdued hue of colors that is beautiful to the eye. The naked limbs of the area trees become art forms against the blue skies of winter!
We have two popular trees that grow locally. The Cedar Tree stays green all year long and can sometimes be a nuisance as they tend to easily overrun an area. You will often find land that has been cleared of all of its cedar, leaving only the oak trees. It is a short variety of tree with green foliage. The Cedar Trees are currently full of pollen which causes allergy symptoms referred to as Cedar Fever.
The Oak Tree
Our most popular tree in the Central Texas area is the Oak Tree. We have several varieties of Oaks in the Texas Hill Country. The Oak tree has gnarly branches underneath its green growth and when it sheds its cover, the branches are displayed boldly against the landscape. The Live Oak, another type of tree, remains green through the year though it does produce some debris during various seasons.

The Artwork of Nature
I am fascinated by the design which Mother Nature creates with the newly bared branches. The design of the branches meld into all types of designs that look like paintings against the sky.
As you drive around the Texas Hill Country, keep your eyes open for those special scenes of nature. Look also for the beautiful Fall grasses that spread across the hills and once green areas. They are a wonderful white hue which stands out against the rich blue skies of winter. Look also for the colorful bushes and plants that do well in the cold winter climate. We enjoy beautiful winters in this Central Texas area! Come visit us!
