Zinnia’s are beautiful flowers that spring in the late summer early fall. These were planted by a neighbor of my relatives, and they really made the driveway so lovely. There were zinnias everywhere! Zinnias, got their name from Johann Gottfried Zinn, who contributed greatly to the study of anatomy, and to provide the first comprehensive anatomy of the human eye. Interestingly enough, he was a botanist also, and thus the flower was named after him.
“Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava conceived the Sundial Bridge’s unusual design, his first free-standing bridge in the United States.”
This is Alexander Valley Road.
This vineyard was off of some random road off of Alexander Valley Road, north of Healdsburg, CA. The back road to Calistoga, and Napa Valley. Truly the heart of wine country in my opinion. Some of the best and most beautiful vineyards and wineries in the world.
If you are in California and enjoy wine, you should not miss taking a drive through Sonoma County, especially in the spring.
You will see rolling hills of green, vineyard after vineyard, beautiful old trees, fresh water, spring flowers, and of course spacious blue skies!
