Springtime at Shake Ridge
It's only March, but what an odd year this is starting out to be. Drought conditions were slightly alleviated by good rainfall in February, though we will watch our water supplies carefully. Then these warm days, delightful for us humans, have convinced the vines that it is time to start growing. About 2 weeks earlier than normal, we are rushing to finish pruning just as the vines start to 'wake' up from their winter slumber.
Meanwhile enjoy these glorious springdays. Daffodil Hill is scheduled to open on March 15 - a blazing hillside of yellow. The poppies and lupines are starting to bloom, the grass is finally green and lush, and it's a perfect time for a bike ride on county roads. Come visit us here in Sutter Creek and enjoy our gorgeous scenery, and then stay for the great hospitality. Join us on our deck for a glass of wine and a delicious platter of artisan cheeses or our antipasto medley. And relax!
