Sacramento spring appeared quickly, and everything bloomed at once. Didn’t make it up to Daffodil Hill this year. Blooms started early, rain cancelled plans, and then the ranch closed early. Instead Plymouth and Sutter Creek provided the venue for our photo adventure.
Stopped at an Amador County Winery and enjoyed the peaceful scene of a weekday morning.
Headed to the Amador Flower Farm in Plymouth with the idea to use my Macro 60 mm 2.8 lens.
The Amador Flower Farm displays playful garden art.
Remember the useful “Red Wagon”. Here are some waiting to be put to use at the Amador Flower Farm.
Time for lunch and Ann and I headed to Sutter Creek. On Main Street we found a Mexican Restaurant, Pepita’s. The food was delicious, and the service was perfect.
This area was central to the California Gold Rush. Some of the buildings in Sutter Creek try to maintain an old-time look , but traffic and new businesses blend a revitalized spirit.
This dog sculpture has been here for a while. I think that there is a new sign advising visitors to be mindful of their manners!
Took a walk a couple of blocks off Main Street and came across these abandoned houses.
Then we returned to Sacramento about an hour away. A nice way to spend the day!
