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.
