Â We had often driven by the entrance to a vineyard called Val Joanis and one day curiosity had us turning in. It was a much larger vineyard than I was expecting with vines stretching out in all directions over the rolling hills. The vineyard has a place for wine tasting and a very cute gift shop which I hear has wonderful things for sale at Christmas time. What especially charmed me was the garden out back.
Â Every garden should have a scarecrow
Cabbages have the most incredible colors
A collection of watering pots
Â Every garden usually has some snails
Succulent grapes turning golden in the sun
Â I love this row of decorated poles for plants to climb upon
