The area across the street from us was a forest just a few weeks ago, but now the excavators have changed the landscape and the flora and fauna. A period of adjustment is underway, the small creek that is the namesake of our development is being protected by adding retaining walls and abutments and even large steel tunnels to preserve its flow. Within a couple of years the new look will be the way our side of the street looks with houses and streets. I walked the edge of the section...the actual excavation uncovered the red clay of this part of Goochland County and the clay loves to stick to my shoes. This small flower caught my attention as it waited for the next strong breeze to make it all worthwhile.
