A little local color

An enormous cottonwood tree just around the corner from our Ruralville house. I'm not fond of the cottonwood tree as a good tree for this area, because it's too fast-growing and short-lived, but the whiteness of the bark makes for a lovely photograph.

A crawdad's humble abode. I didn't see Mr. CrawDad himself, although it briefly rained this morning, so he was probably rather pleased by that.

Great pictures. If you look closer at the tree, however, you might discover it is a sycamore rather than a cottonwood.
