While community events are in a lull, I thought it might be a good idea to check in with The Paradise Pond to see how the Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts are progressing. It looks like the pond is making a nice recover except for the black willow trees.
Nice new sign
The vegetation has returned.
Bird sightings have returned. (Note the sighting of grilled chicken)
Funding for the recovery supplied by the Texas Ornithological Society.
This sign informs about the Saturday Bird Walk which happens each Saturday.
A statement of the recovery plan which concentrates on native plant replacement
Can see the black willows that have died as a result of the salt water.
You can see the lack of tree canopy over the pond. The replacement of the canopy is a priority.
Another shot of the absence of a canopy.
This grackle followed me around, so I decided to make him a portrait.
Hard to see but many new tree plantings.
Native plants returning.
A lot of green
I could not help take this shot of Mrs. Woodys auto repair shop on the way back from Paradise Pond. Pink is the new olive drab
