Effects of rain

On June 24th, after we’d had rain, I went down to Great Hills Park. Here are some effects of that rain.

Texas lantana flowers, Lantana urticoides

Wet rattan vine, Berchemia scandens

Petal of a white prickly poppy, Argemone albiflora, on horsemint, Monarda citriodora

Creek views from Great Hills Park on January 24th

with 28 comments

Southern maidenhair ferns, Adiantum capillus-veneris, greened up a panel of creekside wall.

Mustang grape vines, Vitis mustangensis, hung near the shallow waterfall at what’s called the fish pool.

In the southern part of the park a whale of a gravel bar in the main creek conjured up Moby Dick.

After I walked to the gravel bar and looked back, these reflections waved my way.
