A picturesque setting for a wedding ceremony, don't you think? The only down side was 97 degree temps and gusty winds that toppled the flower urns. During the ceremony the resident vineyard cat decided to make an appearance and walk directly in front of the bride and groom during their vows. He had an audience and he knew it, it was very funny.
I loved these rose covered arches, They led to a very nice patio area with fountains and sculpture. The reception was set up there.
Some beautiful flowers in the garden.
Baby grapes. I forgot to see what varietal this is.
I love the palette of pinks and purples in this window box.. We ate dinner at this charming restaurant, Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen in St. Helena, just a few minutes north of the winery. A one hundred year old fig tree was growing in the courtyard. I didn't want to disturb the guests eating at the table in front of the tree to take a picture of it. But I was all excited to see it since I have my little figlet trees growing in the Ugly. There is hope for my little trees! Our waiter said that their fig tree produces 2 to 3 crops a season and they use the fruit in their dishes.
I hope you enjoyed our little jaunt into the Napa Valley. Cheers!
