Scenic Drive on Hwy 1. Big Sur, Coastal Farms & Santa Cruz Wine Tasting with Aunty Uma

Hello and Happy Monday! Hope your July 4th holiday weekend (for those in the U.S.) is relaxing and fun with family, friends and good food. ⁠. For me I had my Aunty Uma visiting from New Jersey. She is here for a reikii consultation with a client and is staying with me for the week. She took a day off from work to go on a scenic drive on coastal Hwy 1 yesterday. It was your picture perfect Northern California day on this July 4th weekend. Misty, cool foggy morning, clear blue skies in the afternoon, and temperatures in the mild 60s-70s and 80s, just perfect.

It’s a brief moment in time when the valley is covered in vibrant yellow mustard flowers, and we got to witness this spectacular nature scene last March when we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary there. Right before the pandemic lockdown! Talk about perfect timing!

Friday Flowers. Winter Rose Bouquet

Winter in the garden means lots of pruning around here, of which my roses especially get a good hard prune. But with our temperatures really mild in the 40s, 50s and 60s our roses haven’t slowed down and have plenty of new growth, buds and flowers still abloom. However, these bushes really do need a break before they start their stellar performance in the Spring. And so as I pruned I cut all the blooms and buds for winter garden bouquets to enjoy indoors.
