Drizzly Day at Ironstone

It’s hard to tell it’s almost spring here in the foothills, unless you visit Ironstone Winery in Murphys.  The flowers were amazing even on this drizzly day.

One of the lucky gardens who work there said they have 562 wine barrels of bulbs this year.

Pale yellow daffodils and white tulips are perfect partners.

Most of the tulips are just starting to bloom…..

Drizzly days don’t bother the funny face violas.

Trees are bursting in bloom too.

A visit to Ironstone is never complete without a stop to see the nugget.

(Note to my Texas friends…..this nugget was found less than three miles from our place in Jamestown at the old Harvard Mine.)
