Thought for the day:
We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace. ~William Ewart Gladstone
Hello friends and neighbors. Like Mr. Rogers used to say, "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Won't you be my neighbor?" I know some of ya'll living in the area may disagree because it is drizzling rain and the high is only supposed to be the in the middle forty's.
I love this kind of day because it is going to pay dividends when spring comes in a few weeks. I spend an inordinate amount of time in my yard. I have firsthand knowledge, and water bills, of what the drought has done to our yards. The snows have brought plenty of nitrogen and the rains have made it easier for the flora to breakthrough. My Day lilies, Jonquils and other bulbs are springing to life as I construct this blog. Soon we will be awash in color. I must tell you that spring in Fort Worth is hard to beat. In fact Texas in the spring is wonderful.
Our state flower is the Blue Bonnet. They bloom all along our highways with Indian Paint Brushes, Butter Cups and several other species of wild flowers. Hopefully the rains have provided Mother Nature with a few more hues on her pallet with which to dazzle our senses. I love Fort Worth, can you tell?
Our great city is the recipient of many blessings. First and foremost is the vision of past and present city leaders. We have beautiful parks, a safe and vibrant downtown, several world class museums and a wonderful climate. We have always been fortunate to have a string of powerful and wealthy benefactors in step with the local government. Fort Worth has too many blessings to list here but I have to give a nod to our Citizens. I show out of state buyers every week. Without exception they always comment on our friendliness and respect for others. Good manners ain't nothing special down here, that's just the way we were raised. Manna rains down on us every day and we are thankful.
You are probably wondering why I am rambling about weather and flowers and other subjects instead of talking about Fort Worth Real Estate. Well, I figure you had to wade, waist deep in Realtor websites and blog's to get here. I am content to let them proselytize and tell you how smart they are, and boy, do they ever. I just want you to get a feel for who I am. I think my persona comes through clearly, be that good or bad. I have been marketing and promoting homes for almost 15 years. I know how. If you think I can help you, give me a call. I am always as close as your phone or keyboard.
