Moments like this make us realize how lovely nature is as it renews itself whether as fauna or flower. And, we feel blessed to be the caretakers of this small parcel of earth called Villa Vigneto Texas. A place where the wildlife feel safe enough to nest and birth their babies, yet close enough for us to enjoy them, quietly. In June, we will see our deer babies arrive so we hope you'll come see us and enjoy our wildlife babies as they explore their new home.
Our beloved Texas Bluebonnets surrounding the front gate at Villa Vigneto Texas made an early appearance this year due to the good Fall rains and warm winter. We are glad to see them anytime they decide to arrive as it marks the start of the most beautiful time of year in The Hill Country. With each new year, more Bluebonnets arrive as they drop their seeds easily and embed themselves in the soil by the end of May to get ready for the following Spring. Another sign of Spring we are enjoying is the birth of new wildlife.
While taking an Easter Sunday stroll on the trails, one of our visitors exclaimed, "A Baby Rabbit!" We thought this was a joke: A real Easter Bunny on Easter Sunday??? A quick look down and there in the grass was the tiniest little bunny we had ever seen. Eyes wide open, curled up as small as he could be, and oh so still. We didn't dare get too close or touch him for fear his mama might abandon him, so we took a few pictures on zoom and quietly walked away.
