Texas Thistle & Butterflies

Because of the deer population around the Inn, we let all the natural flowering plants come up where ever they will. It would look lide a moon scape with trees around here if we didn't. This year the Texas Thistle are really thick all over the Canyon Lake area. We have several plants that line our driveway to the Biscuit Hill parking lot, and they are starting to bloom. As long as they bloom our guests are greeted each time they drive down our driveway with a flurry of butterflies. It is magical. If it is dark when you get here, they will all be asleep, but when you drive out for a day of fun, they will send you on your with with a what seems to be a joyful flurry. Here are a few images I shot just today.
