To make sure it gets good and muddy…I’m going to an outdoor festival in Fredericksburg, Texas, to celebrate the gorgeous mesquite tree that grows around here. In south Texas, they call the bigger older trees, “Bull” mesquite.
The wood has a deep red heart and golden outlines the closer to the bark you get. Many beautiful pieces of furniture and cooking utensils, bowls…you name it…has been made with mesquite wood.
We are going to drive three hours down and three hours back and just to tempt the rain gods…I’m not taking an umbrella.
C’mon you big, water filled clouds! Bring it!
