An array of waterlilies

As most of you know, Houston, has had devastating floods this year. Cypress Creek is really a river but with our mix of drought and flood it can go from a trickle to a torrent. It runs from Waller County in north west of the Houston area, through the Mercer Arboretum and then into Lake Houston. The Arboretum had only just repaired acres of woods that had been destroyed in our 10 year drought when the creek completely burst it’s banks flooding most of the new work. The volunteers must have been devastated. As soon as it opened again, we went to see what was left and we were surprised that some areas were still beautifully planted even though half of the park was closed.

In the next few posts, I will show their new color palette. This is a link to my previous post magenta and yellow palette.
