We decided to head out on a drive the other day.  Texas has a lot of bayous and they’re apparently “scary and worthless” to a lot of folks.  We headed to the Armand Bayou Nature Center and took a stroll around.  There were huge thistles all over the place and if you can see Allie’s arm details, she has a lovely thistle tattoo on her forearm.  When we got married, Allie carried thistles, although they were a bit less prickly looking than these.  We like thistles a lot.  Maybe it’s the Scot in me.
