Here in this West Yorkshire valley, the trees I'm looking out on are Ash, Sessile Oak, Sycamore and Crack Willow.
'We live in the Texas Hill Country,' writes Rheba, 'with gentle rolling hills and Escarpment Live Oaks, Spanish Oaks, Texas Ash trees and my favorite, Sycamores among others.'
Rheba and her husband Farris manage their 120 acre ranch, The Lair, with wildlife in mind. There are bobcats, deer, turkey (yes, the wild variety), raccoons, skunks and all kind of birds.
'Believe it or not, we have actually found gastroliths, or dinosaur gizzard stones on our place. We are not far from Texas' Dinosaur Park where one can see actual dinosaur foot prints of two kinds imbedded in the rock at the edge of a stream.'
