Trunks of black willows, Salix nigra, reflected in Bull Creek.

As I said yesterday, once upon a time we had water. Just four months ago, even if the land was dry, it was conspicuously less parched and barren than now. Here’s a view of the trunks of some black willow trees, Salix nigra, reflected in Bull Creek as it flowed through St. Edward’s Park in northwest Austin on March 10.

Texas isn’t France (though it’s about the same size), but water is water, and we can easily see how it inspired the Impressionist painters.
