Isn’t Spring glorious? In the Napa Valley, it is marked by bud break. This is when the grapevines wake up and the first leaves emerge from the dormant buds. It is the beginning of the growing season.
You can hear “Have you had bud break yet?” all over the valley. It is exciting for anyone who visits or lives in the Napa Valley as you can see vineyards turn from a dark grey to a speckled and evolving green. It is picturesque!
I decided to gather some friends to welcome Spring. I wanted to create a casual setting, incorporating several reminders of the season.
