More Pictures

At Stahmann's pecan orchard.  For years this was the largest pecan orchard in the world.  The trees lining the highway are some of the oldest pecan trees in the area.  This is the only place I know of where the branches form a closed canopy over the highway.  I wonder how they harvest the nuts from these trees?

Blue building in Vado.  Painted in the brightly-colored Mexican style.  It seems like fewer buildings are painted this way in recent years.  Prosperity has taken its toll.

Viburnum (Wild Raisin) in our orchard.  Red leaves provide a contrast with the yellow leaves of the Mexican Plums in the background.
