I thought I'd share some of our recent wanderings. This was an afternoon filled with fun, relaxation and beauty.
This is the sign for Flint Hill Vineyards. We were out there weekend before last for a tasting. They have some really nice wines, and my favorite is their Viognier.
Here is what they say about it: Picked at the height of ripeness. Our Viognier is aged in stainless steel and has the perfect mix of fruit and floral notes. The wine sets itself apart with juicy peach and apricot flavors. Try this wine chilled with your favorite light dish or on your back deck at evening sunset.
This is the family home as it was restored. Much of it, however, is still original. It houses both the tasting room and the Century Kitchen restaurant. You can read more about this here.
On our round about way to Flint Hill, we came across this interesting mailbox dressed up like a grasshopper.
Later that same day we visited Reynolda Gardens to look at the flowers. This is a peony, and a bumble bee going in for a pollen sample.
There were many varieties of peonies, some with with big, full flowers like these.
To ones like this with a single layer of petals, and another little bee sampling the goods.
