Wine & Wildflowers


wildflowers_0495I feel like this summer is zooming by, and yelling “catch me if you can” from a sunny blur of golden sun. So I’ve been making it a point to stop and enjoy the golden light that doesn’t stay in the sky as late as it did last week. This summer, I’m all about finding the lawn parties and free music concerts and places where I can spread out a blanket under a weeping willow and sip an iced coffee with vanilla or a glass of crisp white wine (red, too).

The other night I piggybacked with some wineclub members as they attended the semi-annual wine pick-up parties at Michael~David. We lounged with a little live music and tastes of wine. The winery is on the family’s homestead, and while I’d been out to write about the family a few times, I had never hung out there. I was oddly enthralled by the wildflower garden, where guests are welcome to pick the purple, yellow and green flowers. I didn’t take any flowers home; just as many iPhone pictures as I could take before my phone died.

These are the shots from the last 20 percent of battery life. Don’t you hate that? (But that’s why I just bought this, and I expect my life will never be the same).
