Visiting the Ferrari-Carano Winery Gardens
My husband and I recently made a visit to the wonderful Ferrari-Carano Winery along Dry Creek Road outside of Healdsburg, California. The location is spectacular and the wines quite tasty but I fell in love with the gardens. The gardens were created by Rhonda Carano. There is no charge to wander through them and apparently in the early spring 10,000 tulips are in bloom. We were told that each year they are planted in a different color scheme. You can bet I'll be headed back there then!
Beautiful spots in the gardens.
One interesting thing I learned about was the cork oak tree. If you click on the photo of the sign it should become large enough for you to read.
I rubbed the snout of the wild boar sculpture for luck—it is my firm belief that you can never have too much good luck!
