These cat-tails were practically all that remained of the foliage surrounding
the retention pond near Lafayette and Georgetown Roads.
Everything had been mowed down the large fenced area,
destroying habitat for water birds that live/d there.
Across the pond a quartet of trees reflected their images
on to the pond's surface, a quiet presence that helped to
fill in the empty space surrounding them.
Perhaps next year the undergrowth will return, creating
a nursery for the offspring of geese and ducks.
