TOWN + COUNTRY

THINGS I FIND AND SEE ON MY TRAVELS OR AROUND TOWN

INSPIRED LANDSCAPES


Thomas L. Woltz takes an innovative, yet ecological approach to his landscape architecture projects. Whether he is greening urban gardens, reforesting miles of fragile coastline or designing the National Zoo’s Asia Trail, Woltz definitely has a pulse on the urban landscape. I was drawn to his work after learning he was the designer for one of the wineries I’m a member of  Medlock Ames in which he earned a 2013 Honor Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects for.

MENDOCINO INSPIRED


There is nothing like driving up North, leaving the city behind and mellowing out for a bit. Plans called for apple picking, cider drinking, cooking in the outdoors, canoeing and well you just CAN NOT travel North without stopping to drink some local wine. My favorite part. I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I wanted to, I needed this time to put the devices down and just breathe for a bit. I have and will always be torn between city life and country life. Free as bird, walking barefoot in the grass, eating and drinking under a tree, lazy days watching the sun set and doing yoga while the sun rises… that’s the  life.

We are a food community that brings people together and provides the tools to learn about growing, preparing and sharing delicious food.” has become a local favorite amongst the culinary curious and the weekend tourist visiting wine country, since their opening in April of this year.

STYLE: FALL INSPIRED


September has arrived. Which means fall for most people but here in San Francisco it’s the start of our summer… My trip to Mendocino is planned and I’m dreaming of apple picking, cider making, cozy blankets and cool nights.
