Thank you for visiting, and we're so glad you had a great first experience! Every season has its beauty here, and during the summer it's best to come early. Sounds like you figured out all the best summer tricks to enjoy your visit too.

maybe we didn't visit the park at the right season/time because there were really few flowers and blossoms in general... anyway, if you are around, you can jump over ther and spend some time... really friendly lady who sold the tickets by the way!

If the fruit is light green and bumpy all over, I call the fruit Osage Orange or Bois D'Arc Apple. I call the tree Bois D'Arc. (East Texans pronounce it "Boar Dark.")
