The French Laundry, Napa Valley, turn of the century stone building surrounded by lush gardens. Overseen by Chef Thomas Keller. I believe this to be a once and a lifetime dining experience. The only words I have to describe this treasure are, breathtaking, amazing, and beautiful. This destination is one for my bucket list. Visit www.thomaskeller.com.

Hydrangeas

In my earlier post on this beauty, I talked about how hard it was for me, here in Florida to grow my favorite flower. I can tell you I have spent a lot of money trying to figure out the right lighting, how much water, and how often to water. It has paid off so far. I was so determined to make this work.

Last year we had a very old and large tree removed from the backyard. Due to our storm season and the bad weather that comes along with that, if a tree looks like it may be a danger, it has to come down. Not to worry, another tree was planted, in a different location, to take its place. It’s never easy to watch these magnificent and very large trees be dismantled.

Anyway, left was a large mound of mulch where the tree once stood. I looked at that mound every day, thinking to myself, this is a constant reminder of what was left. Then it hit me, this is the place. I went to our local nursery and bought a hydrangea, then another and another. Every day I go out back and just gaze at their beauty.
