After months of blue skies and drought here in the Texas Hill Country,
we've finally had rain... and rain... and rain.
Our small pond has filled up, spilling over into the creek below our house.
The larger ponds... ours and those upstream... are no longer grassy fields,
but reflective pools for the surrounding trees.
But the photos below were taken within the past few weeks,
even after inches and inches of rainfall.
They're of branches of Lake Travis... well, of what used to be branches of Lake Travis.
It's just a matter of time now... I hope it's just a matter of time...
before the water makes its way to these grassy fields and rocky slopes, as well.
How much more rain will it take?
