Ventured out yesterday to properly enjoy the phenomenal 77 degree weather that was occurring. If only it would last and last…but anyhow I happened to notice some lovely mini-sunflowers and lantana growing in a vacant lot near the train tracks.
In the bag they went. Where else would they go?
There’s also a lime and fig tree nearby, so I delicately snipped some trimmings from each tree. Also added a few stems of nondescript greens, that were clogging a pathway in the front and really needed to be removed.
Because the flower elements were short to begin with, I went with a natural hand-tied bouquet which I later plopped into the aqua ball jar.
Had dinner in Napa last week after another delightful day of Wine Country. I couldn’t help but capture this image of what I feel represents California. Limes and Hydrangeas are two of the many commonalities that are a result of the wonderful growing Climate. What’s nice about Napa and Sonoma is that they are only a little over an hour’s drive from where I live in Marin. The weather has been “Summer-like”, with highs in the 90’s. It is a strange alternative to the foggy and cold temperatures we’ve been having in the city and parts of Marin.
ah..my absolute favorite. Dahlias are growing abundantly right now.
I picked a bunch up at the Thursday Ferry Building Farmers Market.
