Spring in an Old Grove - Napa Valley, CA



I've been on a short business trip to Northern California and had a chance to do a bit of sightseeing. Even with overcast skies, the view was very sunny with what I think is wild mustard growing between the vines.

This is an amazing photo. THe vines look dead. Do they still produce? I have no idea. Gorgeous color!

Very early colors of summer with a fair chance of a noble wine. A harmonious picture!

Oh, that spring green! Lovely! It makes me wonder when we are getting spring in Seattle as I look out my window at more snow. Can you believe it?

Wow Tash, that is a gorgeous photo! And yes, my guess is mustard too. We had it everywhere growing up. Something I don't see anymore and had pretty much forgotten about till now, thanks! :)

I'm over playing poker with Pasadena Adjacent
When I take business trips why is it to places like Buena Park?
(my grape vine looks a bit like this but in my case it's probably dead).

Spring already! I would have said Tuscany in May if asked to place this view.

PJ said...

I would love to have been there. Is the field being left fallow for a time or is it a relic?
