The Country Garden Showcase #45

All Rained Out...
I am embarrassed to admit it, but there wasn't much gardening progress made around here this week.  The rain foiled most of my plans, but we did have a wonderful visit with some of our kids.  

Our home sits on a knoll above the Kaweah River.  The river access road washed out sometime before we bought this place and it's a pretty treacherous walk down to the water.
The rain let up for the afternoon on Saturday so the kids spent the day building a new path.  We will be forever grateful.  No more twisted ankles.

Later, I took a walk and observed that many native plants are already budding out.  It seems a little early to me.  Time will tell.
  It's been a real challenge for me to identify some of our new flora and fauna.  So much fun too.
We ended our weekend with a walk at the main fork of the river.   There is so much beauty here it seems impossible to have a bad day.   
If the weather cooperates, I hope to make a little progress in the yard.
