Independence, Texas

Last Saturday, my wife and I went on a drive to look at the bluebonnets near Brenham, Texas. We couldn’t stop and get out in some of the normal spots because of the quarantine requirements. Still, we managed to spend a few minutes walking around Old Baylor Park at Independence, Texas.

We were probably about a week past prime wildflower season, but the butterflies didn’t seem to mind. We saw:

Dainty Sulphurs, Common Buckeyes, Common-Checkered Skippers, Gray Hairstreaks, Pipevine Swallowtails, a Question Mark, and Varigated Fritillaries.

The Pipevine Swallowtails and Varigated Fritillaries were especially numerous.

  1. I love that park. Our dulcimer club was scheduled to play on the front porch, but that had to be canceled.
