WET WEATHER COMING: Cover the woodpile and plant the natives!

We have a few wet days coming.  It's time to cover the woodpile if you want some dry logs and kindling.  The National Weather Service says we may get as much as an inch or more of rain from late Tuesday through Thursday.  
The San Diego Chapter of the Calif Native Plant Society (CNPS) had a big sale at Balboa Park last Saturday.  There were several Deerhorn faces there, and a great selection of plants suited to our Chaparral and Oak Woodlands.  If the rain really does come it's a great time to do some planting.
Here' s my haul: manzanita, ceanothus, several sages, Mexican flannelbush, wild grape and rose, bush poppy, penstemon, and monkey flower.  C'mon rain!
