It’s probably not going to surprise anyone but most, if not all, my photos are of my home. We are on a very old ranch, originating with General Vallejo, then one other family then the farmer’s family. The original home, that finally had to be destroyed because it was dangerous, left behind old garden plants that have naturalized over the century since they were planted.
The vineyard is both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wine grapes, a fairly common duo in vineyards here in Sonoma Coast AVA. We are not that close to the ocean and have a very hot Mediterranean climate, not remotely coastal. Since the AVA compromises something like 500,000 acres–that’s really large–it is many different climate zones all in one. We are hoping that where we grow our vineyards is soon to become it’s own AVA. That definitely would be good news!
A seeker, painter, photographer, artist, dabbler, writer and fragrant rose lover, my mind a magic space long before I tread my rocky lane. Always a healing place if willing to turn over stones. Carry eagle feathers that fall in my path.
i am. i do. i always will.
