Duane is now building the ‘table’. The table top will consist of a large painting – horizon on each side where native California plants and plants produced by agriculture share landscape. I found this to really be the truth while visiting Visalia – There seems to be an appreciation for the native and cultivated plant.

The morning sun was still rising when I spotted these blooming nightshades on the trail near the vineyard. On the right is the early grape plant breaking through the soil.
