As you saw last time, on August 30th I photographed a flowering desert willow tree, Chilopsis linearis, on the restored prairie at what used to be Austin’s Mueller Airport. Now this close look at a few of the tree’s many flowers lets you understand why people and institutions have increasingly planted the desert willow as an ornamental.
