Every bend in the river reveals a new view of the Master Gardener's landscaping.
He does magnificent work!
Someone has been helping the Master Gardener, there are places to sit, rustic benches made from logs, to rest on & meditate or to simply lose oneself in the beauty & the song of the river.
But of course what goes down must go up again so we had the long hike back up to the top of our mountain!
The sun was setting, it was 5.30 pm. & as it filtered through the trees I could not resist one last photo, it was a beautiful day.
When we got back to the house I saw from the deck that we had more visitors.
These two handsome fellows!
This one came up closer I think he was hoping for a handout, he just stood & stared at me for several minutes but the Forest Rangers & Game Wardens will fine us, so sorry chaps, no freebies!
