garden slumber party

one of the great joys of my weekend was camping in the vineyard garden at the reid ranch...


i adored sleeping amidst growing plants, misty dew, redwood trees, and softly singing birds.

walk with me through a few magical moments...

{beans + barn}



{sunlight + sunflower}



{full foliage grapevines}



{onward + upward}



{vine + sky}



{tendrils + tiny web}



{sunset glow}



{grapes growing}



{glowing gnome caves + dancing blue flames}

First time inn guest...love it (photos too!) We stayed at a B&B in the Catskills this weekend in lieu of camping which was oversold but we still had a great time. Singing pond frogs and a cool night's breeze.

Such fun! I am going to sleep out in our yard with the kids later in the summer.

I had no idea artichokes looked like that! How cool.

robbie...artichokes are so purplicious! they are basically a giant thistle, which makes me think of eeyore. :D

katie...oh, thank you my dear! how sweet. i try to capture the magic of a place and conjure it up again here at the inn. your kind words make my innkeeper heart happy.

mim...yes! i love a camping trip at home. the beauty of sleeping outside with the convenience of running water, bathrooms, and easy food. i'm planning to do it again this summer.
