Wisteria and Jasmine Courtesy of Mother Nature ~ Napa, CA

Shellie's Camera 2010 till June 2012 363

Let’s Celebrate Earth Day ~ with some pictures from our new garden! 

All courtesy of Mother Nature, some great gardeners, and the fertile soil near the Napa river - there is a reason why such wonderful wines are grown and produced here. However, these pictures do not do these Wisteria, Jasmine, and Apple Blossom justice, since the aroma is part of this package, and let me tell you the scent is mind blowing!

Taken from the second story window looking over our small yard, it’s a glorious house warming gift, since they were at the height of their bloom last week when we moved into our new home. It just does not get better than this!

More Napa pictures coming, since we are hiking this weekend and the weather is just in the 80’s. You should see the profusion of California poppies everywhere. Hopefully we can capture their beauty in a picture to share with you.

Thanks for reading!

Gorgeous! Too bad blogs don't come with a scratch and sniff app, as I'm sure they smell heavenly! Enjoy your new home!

May you enjoy your new home!

Alexia -
I can't believe I missed Bloggiesta! Not that I could have done it... with the move and all - I am so glad you were part of it so now I can pilfer. *big grin*

You know I wonder how long it will take to get the smell factor in on our computer technology?

Thanks so much for the well wishes.

Schez -
Thank you!

Just opening the window with the breeze and the whole house smelled of flowers. Just lovely.

Kim -
I forgot my camera on our walk yesterday and we saw some baby goslings (little grey fluffy guys) on the Napa Valley River banks and a bunch of poppies. I was so - "kicking myself in the bottom"!

Thank you!

Logan -
Thank you!

Now to rest a bit since my back is killing me. Never move Logan. My sage advice. *wink*

How beautiful!! I hope you both are settling in well. :)

Thank you Amanda -
We are settling well and so are all the unpacked boxes - as tables and such and are now part of the decor. lol...

Beyond that we are well. Ziggy is the one who is very happy. I think he likes it here better than Scottsdale, but then again so do we.

Cheers Amanda!
