Butternut Creek Landscape 3774

Here’s a vertical winter landscape showing Buttercup Creek in the town of Cedar Park on a mild and clear February 4. The dry grass may have been switchgrass, Panicum virgatum, and it spoke to the previous season, but the black willow trees, Salix nigra, were already rising into spring with reddish new growth in their crowns. Not far away I found some unaccustomed little flowers, about which you’ll see and hear more next time.
