Yountville and the French Laundry Garden

I had such a great weekend in Napa last weekend with so many adventures I almost forgot to share this one!  It would have been a shame too, since this was a true highlight for me.  

While I didn’t get to eat at the French Laundry, I did take a walk through its gorgeous vegetable garden.  Here is my visit in pictures.

Bachelors buttons hold a special place in my heart; used to grow them as a young girl.

Don’t You Wish You Had…A Grotto?

I do.  This is the grotto from Blake Garden in Kensington (just north of Berkeley), the historic residence of the President of the University of California.  Click here to read about the residence and its history.
