As I make my way around the Blackland Prairie, the signs of growth are everywhere. While I understand some of it, it’s kind of sad to see the land used for farming and ranching for so long fall victim to so-called progress. Nevertheless, signs of the past manifest in a few farmhouses still standing in East Williamson County, Texas. Some, like in the opening photo, are intact, but I seldom see signs of life there. That field in front, however, is still actively-cultivated. The other couple, being slowly consumed by unchecked trees, have morphed into memories, now more home to critters. As people continue to find affordable land and lives, some of this prairie will go away. Hopefully, not before I record as much as strength allows.
