A Bit More of Napa

We went to Hess Collection for another wine and cheese tasting. Not only do we love the wine, but we love the winery grounds as well. 
Miss Christy, here are some California poppies for you!

I had fun taking photos of the water lilies. It reminded me of being at Monet's garden in Giverny. 
You know how much I love to take water reflection shots!
And here we are, the Fab 50's!
Happy Monday!

The Colors of You

This is my second post for today, just to let you know there's a new post on my Devotions. You can see it here.

Happy weekend!

Back to Napa

Not too much to say about these other than they're pretty. I took these at Caymus Vineyards. We did a wine and cheese tasting tour which was wonderful.
Rick was in full vacay mode!
Last year we toured this winery, Castello di Amorosa. We didn't want to do the tour again, but we definitely had to go back for the chocolate! They have the BEST sea salted chocolate, which pairs perfectly with cabernet and port. It was also necessary to take some animal photos for Emma and Sophia.
We want to live here. Sigh.
Next, we did a tasting at ZD wines. I like these shots of their trellis.
Then we went to a small winery called Goosecross Cellars. It may be a small winery, but their wine is fabulous.
This little guy was not the least bit intimidated by me. He was too busy napping in the sun.
On another note, Klara, the mother and mother-in-law of good friends as well as a friend of my mom's, died a few weeks ago. Her memorial service is today. I'm sure they would all appreciate your prayers, as this will be a difficult day. Thanks.

Rombauer Winery and Garden

One of our favorite wineries in Napa is Rombauer. Not only do we love Rombauer wines, but the garden there is beautiful! 
Ha ha...a tree made from empty Rombauer bottles.
We brought along cheese, bread, and grapes. We bought a chilled bottle of Romabuer chardonnay and enjoyed our picnic lunch in the garden.
Vic contributed to the tree.
Love this pic~Vic and Mo are still sweethearts after all of these years!
Happy Monday!
