We found the water in the lakes at the park to be quite low, but, after all, we are in the midst of a drought. That drought did not seem to have affected the vegetation though. Things were lush and overgrown. The lakes were covered in lily pads, duckweed, and other water plants. The live oak trees, as always, were covered in Spanish moss. Birds were not as plentiful as they sometimes are, but the park was teeming with life, both animal and vegetable.
The best thing was, since school had just started and summer vacations were over, we had the park almost to ourselves. It was very quiet. I think we only saw five other visitors while we were there. This in a place that is usually crowded with people.
Both hubby and I carried cameras and we took lots of pictures, so instead of taking you on a walk through my garden this week, here is a walk through the park.
If you need a day's vacation from your garden, I highly recommend Brazos Bend State Park.
