The good life and the weather to go with it. Just what my bountiful garden craves right now in the verdant Napa Valley spring.
It’s late April and after two days in the 80s, Mother Nature has turned on the air conditioning late at night and into the morning. The morning fog usually burns off around 9:30 and the day is then bathed in sunshine. Sweet peas are filling the air and flourishing in my garden. I go out everyday and cut a handful of the colorful blossoms to showcase in the livingroom.
High temperatures are expected to get into the mid 70s and inching up into the low 80s for the weekend. This is s great time for an early evening barbecue and dine alfresco on the patio — bathed in the shimmering light of candles on the table and Tiki torches around the perimeter of our little oasis.
