Rain-Lily Colony Flowering 8385

On Friday, September 20th, Austin finally got several inches of rain. A few days later, right on schedule, up came the rain-lilies, Cooperia drummondii. On September 23rd and 25th I went to a place that had a pretty good colony of those flowers, which I portrayed in various ways. During my second visit a man saw me photographing and came over to tell me he knew of an even better colony not far away. That’s how I ended up on Ridge Oak Dr. at Perry Ln., where I took this panoramic picture.
