Returning to one of my favorite subject here…FLOWERS!!! I have been revisiting just posting flower picts, but I thought it was time for one more :-) In 2005 I joined my sister and some of her friends to the annual Taste of the Valley in the Alexander Valley, CA for some great wine tasting. Several of the wineries have food and special events and over the two days you can visit WAY too many wineries and be very glad that your sister has a friend who does not drink and that can be a designated driver :-) . We had a great time and got to taste some really tasty wines. I, of course, had my camera with me and while we were waiting for the first winery to open and let us in I wandered around outside their gates and found this guy hanging out on a flower just waiting for his moment of fame and stardom—I was happy to oblige!
