Here is a closer shot of "our" pavilion. This park is beautifully landscaped with plants and flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. It does require a lot of maintenance to keep it looking like this, but it's worth it.
I don't know what these plants are called but they are certainly pretty and do a good job of attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. We enjoyed our stay at Bentsen Palms Village.
Ted and Donna and Stella and I went across the border to buy our medicines. We spent a lot of money, but we bought a year's supply of our medications so it was worth it.
It is definitely different in Mexico this time of year. Workers were cleaning the bridge walkways and getting ready for the huge influx of snow birds or Winter Texans that will be arriving very soon. There was little activity compared to what goes on during "the season" and hardly any street vendors were present.
