# Labelling on ParametricPlot

Is it possible to add to the Mesh points in a ParametricPlot the x-values in sort of a Callout-style way? E.g. on the following simple function:

ParametricPlot[{Sin@x, .3 Log@(x^2)}, {x, 0, 10}, Mesh -> 20]


The points are on the plot (a little small), now there should be the x values (0,0.5,1,1.5,...) indicated next to the points, as said in form of as it is produced with Callout.

pp = ParametricPlot[{Sin@x, .3 Log@(x^2)}, {x, 0, 10},
Mesh -> {Subdivide[0, 10, 20]}, MeshStyle -> PointSize[Large]];
points = Cases[Normal[pp], Point[x_] :> x, ∞];
Show[pp, ListPlot[Callout[#, #2] & @@@
Transpose[{SortBy[points, Last], N @ Rest@Subdivide[0, 10, 20]}]], ImageSize -> 400] Also

ParametricPlot[{Sin@x, .3 Log@(x^2)}, {x, 0, 10},
Epilog -> ListPlot[Callout[{##2}, #] & @@@
Table[N@{x, Sin@x, .3 Log @ (x^2)}, {x, Subdivide[0, 10, 20]}],
PlotStyle -> PointSize[Large]][]] Using Epilog

ParametricPlot[{Sin@x, .3 Log@(x^2)}, {x, 0, 10},
Epilog -> {AbsolutePointSize,
{Text[N[#], pt = {Sin@#, .3 Log@(#^2)}, {0, If[IntegerQ[#], -2, 2]}],
Red, Point[pt]} & /@ Range[1/2, 10, 1/2]}]
