This lovely spot is along the lower edge of the levee (not sure that is the right term) of this lake. It was started in 2004 and is, as we understand it, an all-volunteer activity. We talked some with Mr. Jimenez who, with his wife and possibly others, started the park. He is a retired farm adviser for the University of California and grew up in this area. He was very knowledgeable!
The park had just about everything you could imagine from fruit trees to banks of roses in every conceivable color. It was a wonderful place to walk.
Bananas and chickens – just about everything!
We had never seen a bee swarm. Mr. Jimenez said this one had been twice this size the day before. Apparently, a queen takes part of the swarm and moves somewhere else.
