our friends took us to one of their favorite spots,
a path along a river that runs a short distance from their home near Houston.
They were disappointed because the river was up from recent rains,
preventing us from following their normal route.
I wasn't disappointed at all.
Take my hand and I'll show you what my drought-weary butterfly-and-wildflower-starved eyes beheld...
Watch out for poison ivy!
This butterfly kept posing... I kept snapping.
It came in November, but I finally got my Spring!
