I hope, somehow, they survived.

If not, I hope your natives take hold downstream somewhere.

Thanks for the positive intake on that one dear buddy of mine.
Perhaps next year (On our land)... Where nature hopefully wont interfere, Higher up on the slope.
Hopefully in the years to follow, now in their abundance (I hope) they'll reseed the lower areas.

As Is, between the ferns, I noticed a few of the so cherished hot red cardinal flowers, what we used to call the fire flowers.

Oh well...Now THAT didn't work out well showing you now did it! Here's the real deal, the cardinals

That is the idea...to increase natives and replenish the seed bank.

I still remember seeing a large stand of cardinal flowers in a natural setting for the first time. I hope that you and I both can establish similar stands.

After completing the leaf painting I began another.
Round one. Wanting to try something entirely different...... I applied a blend of aqua to yellow onto a canvas, let dry and began dropping thinned acrylic paint drops in the ocher,browns and subtle oranges atop to hopefully resemble trees and leaves. Each drop was blew around with a tiny little straw this way and that till it was no longer flow-able. Did that for probably couple of hours with of course...a few drops ending more middle than anticipated. Eventually got to thinking I really ought to stop, thinking to myself...boy oh boy my cheeks, back and neck are probably going to be hurting me tonight!
