Spring is Here in the Bay Area

We have friends who look at this view everyday from their gorgeous home.

Of course I had to try to be artsy…

If the city view is not enough, look at their most amazing flower garden.

The beauty of the city contrasted with the beauty of the wine country… these are our first roses of the season in St. Helena.

And our first lettuces…

It poured the Saturday before Memorial Day! There is always a gift…this time it was a rainbow. It made up for our wet feet and soaked clothes.

The Vineyard Walk the next day was as beautiful as ever.

And Tony let Tuqui swim in the pond…she was happy and our furniture was not.

And the vines are growing like crazy. So amazing. Two months ago they were just sticks.

 

In Our Garden

Our first crop of icebergs have come and gone. The peonies have been cut back. But the hydrangeas are starting to pop and the iceland poppies are very happy. It will be mid June before the lavender turns purple and the agapanthas will not be far behind. Of course, we want everything to be perfect for the 4th of July and the July 7 wedding. Hmmm…Mother Nature…
