Ludwigia Flowering by Pond 0983

While most of the prairie site in far northeast Austin that I mentioned yesterday has become a construction zone, I’m still hopeful that the northern end of the strip, which includes a retention pond, will remain undeveloped because it’s so wet. The photograph above shows a few water-primrose plants (Ludwigia octovalvis) flowering along the eastern edge of the pond on July 16.

If you’d like a close look at this kind of flower, you can have one from a few years ago.
