Santa Ynez Grapes on the Vine
Grapes in the Santa Ynez valley. Ok it feels like summer, Spring is just starting, so here is a picture from last Fall. Just because I really like it and I realized I never published it. This is in a nice little vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley.There was a space through the vines that I was able to frame the beautiful valley in the background. The red flowers in the lower right are roses that are planted at the ends of the rows of grapes.

Alice Keck Park's Australian Tea Tree, Virtual Reality
I really love Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens, the variety of wildlife and plants right in the middle
of the city is unparalleled. This beautiful tree is at the corner of Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens,
it's one of my favorite trees in Santa Barbara. I have no idea how old it is, but you can see on the
map of the garden which trees existed before the garden and this is one of them. No surprise, normally
when you see Tea Trees they are trimmed to look more like bushes. This guy must have seen some amazing
things in his lifetime.
