Sonoma County - Winter Into Spring

This is a really beautiful time of year all over Sonoma County. It's warm one day, cool the next. The apples trees are strarting to flower, the oak trees are still bare. There are mustard plants everywhere and sky is very, very blue.

The mustard is in full flower. So are the wild radish.

The oak trees are just about to start budding - but not quite.

There is a trail that winds its way throughout Sonoma County. If you ever come upon it, it's well worth pulling over and going for a walk, or a ride.

One Sunday we were on our way home and we saw a little farm in Sebastopol that had a sign that said Fresh Organic Eggs. We stopped in, rang the doorbell and bought the freshest eggs on earth - they went out to the henhouse right then and there! Best eggs ever!

It won't be long before the apple trees start to bloom. Then the grapes will start to grow again.

We had to pull over on Highway 12 between Santa Rosa and Sebastopol because this incredible field was blooming.

This doesn't show the color, but it still looks pretty cool, don't you think?
