CDPB Theme Day - Lines

The Napa Valley is a dizzying array of lines.
Remember when you were a kid riding in the family's car...looking down ever narrowing rows of crops as they whizzed by until you got dizzy?

Fall in Napa Valley

The fall colors have come quickly in the Napa Valley. I took this looking west from
Oakville Cross Rd at Silverado Trail

OK, I cheated on this one because it was not actually taken in Napa. Over in Sonoma on Old Adobe is Aztec Dahlias . They have some of the most beautiful dahlias I have ever seen. To see more photos of the dahlias click here.

My favorite Street

My favorite street in Napa is Franklin St. The largest Redwoods in the city can be found lining this street and every house looks like it came straight out of a story book. This one is for sale. Just a cool 1.3 M. Maybe I should run down to my back and get a loan. Oh that is right, I do not know who my bank is anymore (woo-hoo WaMu)

Seems like summer

This is only my second September here. I do not remember how long it stayed hot last September but I am ready for cooler weather. A convertible car would have been perfect today.

On the Vine soon to be Wine

It has still been hot in Napa, about 87 degrees today, our usual Indian Summer. But soon it will be time for "crush", when they harvest the wine grapes.

Morning Glory

My neighbor has morning glories covering the entire front of her cottage. They stay in bloom all spring and summer and are a beautiful purple.

Today is the 1st day of Autumn. I thought it had snuck up on us.. but in some parts of Napa autumn is in full swing, as evidenced by this tree on Browns Valley Rd
