Transcript _ H E P H Y R Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, Texas. Vol.2, No. 11 November, 1925 Here are old trees, tall oaks and gnarled pines, . That stream with gray-green mosses; here the ■' v"' : ground Was never trenched by spade, and flowers spring up Unsown, and die ungathered. It is- sweet To linger here, among the flitting birds, And leaping squirrels, wandering brooks, and winds That shake the leaves, and scatter, as they pass, A fragrance from the cedars, thickly set With pale blue berries. In these peaceful shades -- Peaceful, unpruned, immeasureably old -- My thoughts go up the long dim path of years, Back to the earliest days of liberty. -- William Cullen Bryant. On Sunday, November 15th, Lawrence H. Daingerfield and Joseph M. Heiser, Jr., "took a chance" "on the weather, and made a hike to the San Jacinto river bottoms, to explore the woods in which a large stand of holly was discovered last winter. Tho trip resulted in mingled disappointment and elation. The holly grove was found to cover more territory than was originally estimated, but the trees were somewhat scattered, and some of them bore soars and disfigurements that proved the section was not as inaccessible as we had'hoped. A few years ago, there were groves of holly along Buffalo Bayou, fairly close to the city, containing hollies taller and more beautiful than those in the grove described. The Outdoor Nature Club will make an effort to preserve this grove, as the best that can be had at this late hour, but we hope that a few virgin holly forests -- examples of the species at its best -- may be found in some of the less explored forests of the South and saved for posterity. Surely future generations are entitled to something more out of our once vast store than just remnants and penny lots. The tract of about 20 or 25 acres containing these holly trees proved to be remarkably rich in the variety of its vegetation and the size of its giant forest trees. The magnolias, of which there were hundreds, seemed to hold the blue vaiHt of the sky on the tips of their lofty branches, and the autumnal crowns of the tupelos blazed like gigantic torches high overhead. There were rich yellows, browns, and deep reds splashed into the landscape by ash, hickory, sassafras, oak, dogwood and sweetgum trees. Some of the mighty gums were fully three feet in diameter, their topmost branches sharing the higher altitudes with those of the other forest giants. Numerous berry bearing trees, shrubs and vines gave promise of the convention of birds that will meet to feast on their fruits when winter winds blow -- such a convention as we beheld (and heardl) when we passed through on our long hike last February. In the top of one leafless tree was a large, globular mass of tviigs and leaves - the nest of 3ome wild creature, probably a squirrel. We noted several fine cedars, their dark green foliage in strange contrast with the gigantic, nude figures of the old cypresses. The wild, primeval atmosphere of the place brought to mind a verse by Bryant, the lover of nature, which is quoted as the keynote of this paper.
