Foliage on the native tufa

Foliage growing along with the native mosses in our native limestone tufa.

Maiden hair ferns growing inside a pocket along the roadway.

I love these little streams that appear out of the rocks after a rain. The winter has browned much of the landscape but the warm springs have revived the native ferns again.

Beautiful photos. I love the tiny streams and brooks, too.

How I wish I could grow moss and more kinds of ferns here. Beautiful photos!

Love the moss! Did you encourage it or did it just show up? Nothing like moss for making things look old and established.

Kelly - my bad, I should have told you I photographed this along the Guadalupe River close to my home.

Things are so brown in my yard I had to take a drive to look for some green.
