Fields of flowers.
Alice, the owner, has an incredible garden of hollyhocks. She was so kind as to let Nikki and I help ourselves to some dried seeds.
It's all the little touches that make it so special.
In years past we have eaten outside. This year we were lucky enough to be able to eat inside. What a beautiful home!!! Nikki and I always do something special for the girls. This year we made lavender place mats. They also received little gift bags with lavender fabric, lavender linen spray and a pair of lavender garden gloves. All tied up with a little lavender bow and a bee! All throughout the year we are on the look out for lavender items.
After lunch we drove over the hill to Livermore to one of our favorite quilt shops. Can you say hot? I couldn't take a picture of it, but the thermometer on my car registered 108 degrees at one time. We had planned on visiting one of my favorite nurseries also, but we were all just to hot to go.
Sounds like a field trip for another day!
