It has been a while since we updated our walks. Life has been keeping us busy. This morning we checked out a new walk. The Bee Branch Restoration project is a beautiful and a very useful flood mitigation park. The Bee Branch which meanders through north east Dubuque has caused a lot of damage to home owners over the pass several years. Check out the city site if you want more information: Bee Branch Restoration
Another rainy day, we headed out to the Heritage Trail hoping to get 2 or 3 miles in before the rain came. No such luck. Spring flowers are out in abundance. False Solomon Seal (Maianthemum racemosum), Marshmallow Plant (Althaeasp.)

It feels like summer today. Warm and humid, there is a storm system off to the northwest of us. Maybe it will rain tonight. Spent the afternoon, working on the gardens. Carwyn thinks we have too many plants.
