Dense Indian Paintbrushes on Slope 3

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a classic picture that shows a dense colony of Indian paintbrushes, Castilleja indivisa, on an embankment of US 183 in east Austin on March 22, 2001. In the springtimes since then the paintbrushes on that slope have never been as dense and rich.

Did you know that some countries have taken to banning Valentine’s Day celebrations? So have some American schools.
