Monarch Butterfly at Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center and Botanical Gardens

Some folks might think our region was all dried and burnt up if they just followed the news, but they'd be terribly wrong!  Sure, we're experiencing drought like most of the rest of Texas, but we're also alive and flowering (as you can see in the video), and even Fort Davis, where this was shot (at the botanical gardens at Fort Davis' Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center) is greening up nicely.  To see it for yourself, just page down to see Saturday's entry.

The garden's flowers were full of butterflies and insects, busy pollinating yesterday morning...take a look! 

The area's hiking trails are all open, as are the parks and other regional attractions....plan to take a visit to the Texas Mountains soon!
