“A single leaf working alone provides no shade.” ~ Chuck Page
It was a great weekend at the rescue and in the Memorial Garden where I was joined by Maria, Anna, Peggy and Steve. It’s unusual for so many of us to gather at once. With a moderate storm in the Sierras above us, the skies looked ominous.
Steve assured us that it would not rain. He lied. But before the brief shower sent us scurrying for cover, we managed to get a lot done. Steve, Maria and Anna muscled the last of our weed tree stumps out of the ground.
The hideous black plastic bucket that covered the stump for months soon held the evidence of its permanent demise.
Anna’s mom, Lynn, donated nine bags of oriental lilies. We thought we were getting nine bulbs!
Peggy set to work planting them. Their fragrance will soon fill the air.
Anna is a weeding machine. A woman with a mission, she is systematically eliminating every last trace of crab grass –
while Rob has been busy rehabbing the real grass.
We’re blessed that so many young people want to support our mission of rescue. We had a full crew of youth volunteers this weekend.

and new walker, Sierra, with Sequoia.
Another of our hunting dogs was adopted. Let’s just say that some “going home” photos are easier to capture than others!
Remi was SO excited to be with his new little brother, Parker! No dogs were injured in the making of these photos. They loved each other at first sight.
