Paterson Creek Maples
I did a sketch of the lagoon on Paterson Creek at O'Connor one dreary, grey day last winter. This is more representative of the bucolic character through the warmer months of the year.
The trees in the foreground are old Silver Maples which were disfigured by ice storm damage several years ago, and which are in decline. Silver Maple are an excellent choice for this open parkland with moist soils.
