I went to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxhachie on Saturday with my son Brady.  We had a great time.  Here's a few photos.

Nature Hike at Inn Above Onion Creek

I went on a guided nature hike today at the Inn Above Onion Creek on FM 150 just a few miles west of Kyle.  The weather was perfect today!  The guide was quite knowledgeable and I couldn't quite get down the names of all the trees, plants, and wildflowers that he pointed out to the group.  I caught some of the names and took a few pictures to share.


The pictures below are of Milkweed and a Monarch larvae on the Milkweed plant.

Do you see the walking stick?
