The extremely hot temperatures of this last summer are gone and so are some of the summer flowers of our native Texas plants. The heavy rains of a week or so ago and the cooler temperatures this week have brought out the first of our fall flowers. And as you can see from the picture, some are rather impressive. These fall flowers will continue to bloom up to the first frost; so, plan to come by our bed and breakfast to see the Texas Star Gardens in the fall. Although fall is not a good time to plant seedlings of most of the native Texas plants, if you’re interested in getting free seedlings, we’ll take your name and send you an email next spring when you can begin to come by for them.

One of the special attractions of downtown Fort Worth is that a lot of older buildings have been preserved and restored. The architecture and intricate relief on these buildings gives a character to our city that is missing from more modern downtowns. History is also preserved with these buildings, many of which have had significant events take place either outside them or within.
Now you can learn about this interesting history through a free, self-guided walking tour. Nearly two dozen historic markers have been placed thoughout downtown telling the story of the people and event that took place at that location. Now that the weather is cooling off, it’s a perfect way to see downtown Fort Worth and learn about our city’s history all at the same time. And guess what? We have the maps for the tour right here at The Texas White House. One will be waiting for you when you check in.
