Summertime Rolls

Zinnias

I'm feeling really lucky to not know what day it is right now... I have the summer with Adam home to take day trips to Guernville, to travel the Bohemian Highway, to figure out the endless maze of short cuts and country roads in western Sonoma county.  We've visited a handful of regional farmer's markets and today in Santa Rosa I found my flower lady.  She sells huge bouquets of zinnias in coffee cans for $5.50 (you get to keep the can).  We also picked up this crazy heirloom cauliflower, so beautiful I think I'll have a hard time eating it. Wanting to grow a bounty of our own we've been busy in our backyard trying to get our summer garden established, and today we hung cage lights from the renovated barn for a little ambiance.  I guess you could say I'm embracing my inner farm girl...

  1. I found your blog awhile ago after your son's birthday party was featured on Ohdeedoh. Being from the Bay Area I immediately clicked over to your blog after seeing it was held in Tilden Park. We also held my son's (first) birthday party there!
    We moved from SF to Petaluma 2 years ago and LOVE it! Thank you for reminding me of the Santa Rosa Farmer's Market and the coffee tin flower lady; I'll be sure to go next week!
    Welcome to Petaluma! I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

  2. Thanks Megan! We are really enjoying Petaluma so far. Will you be going to the Rivertown Revival?
