Texas Mountain Laurel, an Early Sign of Spring

After a brutal winter, things continue to wake up.  This Texas Mountain Laurel showed little to no damage.  Indeed a seedling I have that is less than a foot tall and planted out in the open showed little damage as well.  The flower pictured above is astounding as well.   I think I am seeing a few more of these in my future visions of this landscape.

There is the strangest very loud bug out there tonight.  Not sure I have ever heard it before, rhythm like a Cicadia, but much higher pitched coming from the Twin Oaks Bed.
