I am not a native of Lubbock, nor even of Texas. I was born and raised in Greenfield, Indiana, spent a couple of years living in Glasgow, Scotland, and then landed in Lubbock where I've been ever since. Have a look!

Tree's Knees

There is a proper name for these roots that stick up out of the water and look like knees, but I have forgotten what it is.

Wow, amazing shot!
I think they're aerating roots or pneumatophores, just checked up my botany notes ;)

Louis has family still in Lubbock. He'll send them to take a look at your blog!

Dsole: That sounds familiar, so we'll go with that! Pneumatophores it is!

Louis: Thanks! It has been extra dusty this week, today we had the second dust storm of the year.
