We apologize in advance for the 29 second Honda commercial we could not edit out.

For those who missed the TV program, live outside the San Francisco Bay Area, or just want to see it again (aren't we vain?), we are proud to share our 4 minute interview with Doug McConnell. We were featured artists on NBC's OpenRoad on May 15th, 2016.

We love the wonderful places and people Doug, and his team, offer his viewers every Sunday at 6:30PM on Bay Area's Channel 3 (NBC). You can visit OpenRoad's website for additional episodes of this great series.

Next week we'll share the story behind the marmot eating the wildflowers (his agent is now pushing for royalties and future gigs).

If you so desire, we hope you'll enjoy sharing the video with others.

Oh yes, due to the high demand for Zorro's autograph we are posting his photo here.

We wanted to share some of the many entries in our guest book:

"What an amazing exhibit. Opened my eyes and brain. A hummingbird is doing its part why can’t humans!"  ~ DZ

“Absolutely spectacular exhibit! Thank you for reminding us of the importance and beauty of our native flowers and the need to protect them.”  ~ Dorothy D.
