Beautiful: purple mountain majesty at Shasta in California.

Starts to get really pretty about Redding to Shasta in California on the 5 North. The many faces of California.

The many faces of California: northern CA heading toward Sacramento on the 5. Looks like sand, but it is parched pasture.

Flora Grubb: fun in Frisco while driving to Seattle.

Flora Grubb nursery in San Francisco is the best ever…please come to San Diego. I’ll manage the shop.

The Sunset garden in Palo Alto, CA. Serendipity sent me due to my outdated GPS in my car that was taking me to a gas station (which I did not find).

Vineyards, farms and beautiful mountain ranges from Paso Robles to San Jose. I stopped for a little red wine tasting in Paso Robles, and sang to lots of Alicia Keys and Gypsy Kings. http://s.rs6.net/t?e=ybZiGTskzuo&c=1&r=1

Road trip San Diego to Seattle. I’m in the habit of stopping in San Clemente whenever I head north. Today my new fave, dirty chai (tea with a shot of expresso) and the petite scone. The key ring? My destination, to claim a dream come true: a little place to call (second) home in one of my favorite cities!

I spent the first hour belting out Adele and Shakira songs.
