Rocks, Cedar Post, Cactus & an Oak

This Oak has grown through rocks, wrapped itself in a hug around a cedar post, and besides the wildlife, is also home to a prickly pear cactus.  I have to admire an oak as stubborn as the early settlers to the area.  Arid, and often dusty, the hill country in South West Texas where my Grandmother’s Kimble County ranch has endured since the late 1800’s could never be called easy.  My Grandmother remembers a day when Cedar trees didn’t grow from every hillside, drinking the water table dry.  Now those same Cedar are home to the Golden Cheek Warbler.  Perhaps it is the dusty and dry climate that makes the rare lush green that huddles and thrives along the rivers and streams so treasured.
