Rain, rain, came our way

Late last week we had several rainy days that triggered the densest emergence of rain-lilies, Cooperia drummondii, since rain finally began to put an end to the drought of 2011 around this time last year. Two days ago, on the morning of September 18th, I stopped where Perry Lane meets Mopac at 45th St. and photographed the descendants of the colony that I portrayed on that site in 2011. This time no one called the police out of fear that I was a spy photographing Camp Mabry across the street. The only thing I spied on was this crowd of graceful flowers.
