For those of you who love Spring, you can understand the agony of having snow well into May, and when the going gets tough, well some of us run away to warmer climes. Where to? Perhaps Sunny California, or maybe Lush Vancouver Island. This lovely tree seen in a picture-perfect Yard on Vancouver Island is called Golden Showers.
Here's a close-up, looks like hanging Wisteria blossoms.
Sweet peas are so fragrant.. these were at the Farmers Market in Mountainview, California.
And the Lavender is just starting to bloom, this variety is Spanish Lavender.
Roses are blooming everywhere you go ... in Topiary form, in Bushes rambling over fences....
Then there are the Vineyards of Napa Valley, the grape clusters are just starting to form.
Wine Tours and tastings...all amidst rolling hills and valleys.
So many wines to choose from!
One by-product of wine making is Grapeseed Oil, which is one of the main ingredients in Napa Valley Soap. We are pleased to announce that we now carry this wonderful Soap at the Camellia. We have tried it, and I should tell you, it feels like silk on your skin.
We also stock a wonderful liquid Soap, and room diffusers.
Next time you buy Strawberries, look at the label, chances are they were grown in Watsonville, Ca.
Here's a close-up of the berry patch.
Field upon field of Strawberries.
Well, the strawberries will soon be ready in Thunder Bay at Belluz Farms. Stop in and visit us at The Camellia. Ask about the Napa Valley Soaps, and our Cottage Paint line.
