Each Spring I ride to these Mesquite blooms on Independence Way (FM 2621) in Washington County. For a couple weeks they light the pasture gold. Bikers training for the annual MS-150 come to this spot from near and far but when the blooms turned gray this year the Earth had lost a great friend near this very spot as she trained for the long ride.
