Texas Parasites

They are rustic…

Unusual…

Unique…

 

More bush than

actual trees…

A parasite for

ranchers…

Food for cattle…

CRACK for horses…

Old School

fence posts…

 

With delicate

lacy leaves

and gnarled

branches…

they are a

SouthWest delight

to some…

Perfect BBQ…

And…

A scourge to others

 

What my elderly

aunt thought were

peach trees during

her first trip to Texas

 

The lowly

Mesquite…
