a sort-of-silent sunday: the french laundry’s gardens

As October comes to a close, I’m leaving you with a treat on this Halloween. During our trip to Napa, we stayed in the town of Yountville, home of The French Laundry. We didn’t eat there, but I did spend some time wandering through the The French Laundry’s gardens, just across Washington Street, in front of the famous restaurant. It was a stunning garden, and I kept wanting to go back. I was tempted to pick a tomato or a carrot, but I didn’t. I was a very good girl. All I took were photos, and I’m sharing these with you today.

Note: I’m about to hit a very busy stretch at my work for the next couple of weeks that may not allow me much time for cooking, much less photographing or writing about it. Please bear with me in the days of silence that may follow – I’m still around, just taking a short break from the blog while duty calls!
