Memorial Park

As we know, the drought has killed a lot of trees in Texas and Memorial Park is pretty hard hit. It's one thing to read that the city will cut down about 5,000 trees. To actually see what that means is another thing altogether. I went for a walk on one of the multi-use trails on the south side of the park. In some places spring had brought green lush foliage and things looked almost normal. In others, however the whole area was cleared and the great mountains of brown debris and sad stumps told the tale. Earth movers have made mountains of branches and stumps and bark where the city has been working. Little green understory plants have popped up in some of the cleared areas. I can only hope we have a wetter summer than is currently predicted. The Memorial Park Conservancy has plans to replant, but those babies will need water!
