Nickel & Nickel in Spring

by on April 9, 2013

Spring is in full flower here in the Napa Valley, especially on the grounds of Nickel & Nickel. Colorful tulips, daffodils, scilla and giant hyacinth rise up, reaching for their place in the sun. The wildflowers along our Highway 29 fence line are back in force—the blue lupine dominate as far as the eye can see, soon to give way to the mountain garland, knee-high sweet peas, mixed poppy, love-in-a-mist, baby blue eyes, and the forever yellow giant lupine. The recent rains have blessed all the winter prep, planning and plantings. Now it’s time to revel in the glorious abundance, knowing our efforts and intentions have brought forth this manifestation for all to enjoy.

Nickel & Nickel Gardens

Spring is a time for sharing in the rebirth of life in the gardens as well as within ourselves. I recently had the special opportunity to host a group of fellow garden enthusiasts here at Nickel & Nickel. Our walk through the gardens reminded me that nothing is worth having if you can’t share it with those who truly appreciate your efforts—with those who have come before us sharing their knowledge and wisdom. I felt the garden tour was a scattering of new seeds and ideas in celebration of the fresh beginning we call spring. This is what inspires me to follow my passion and support the excellence of our winery estate.

PS–What’s your favorite spring flower?
