The Mister, who had never heard the term. The two non-natives in the group (Little Sister and I) gave him a hard time about that.
because it's a very pretty plant.
This little fellow had no fear. We were within 4' of him and he was not phased at all.
On Friday we picked up Nephew from his sitter's house and drove into town to meet Little Sister and BIL for dinner. BIL was delayed (always) so we had some time to kill. Little Sister had never been to Fish Creek Falls so we grabbed a snack and drove over. Nephew has just learned to walk so we needed a short trail--he gets heavy to carry and we didn't have a stroller with us. It was just as well that we had to take it slowly, because the scenery was worth the extra time.
