{reid ranch} blues + greens

yesterday was spent at the reid ranch celebrating the birthday of my beau-père.

(joyeux anniversaire au fromage grand!)

strolling through my pictures this morning, i noticed many shades of beautiful blues and greens...

beautiful blues and greens, indeed.

when i left canada 3 weeks ago, nothing had bloomed. Now everything is full of life and sparkling and vibrant green.

Lovely pictures, Diane.

The vineyard is so pretty! I went to Napa once and thought "wow, I had no idea this type of landscape existed in the US." : )

beautiful. looking at your pictures I can tell that I need to leave the big city, at least for a short day or weekend trip. it feels like I am missing out on all the greens and blues ;)
