Racecourse Grass and Flowers


The Racecourse run of the Rio Grande
is known for its rapids
not for its grass or flowers
but every river has a riverbank
(two actually)
where the land meets the water
and a riot of life ensues
This is especially so in the Southwest
where the land is arid
and rivers are few
Just add water
and stand back!
