You know you want to...you know you want to... "Live like a Local" in Sonoma County!
We wake up here in the wine country every day and we really, really don't take it for granted. There is so much diversity and focus on the right things in this area; so much to do and every day is beautiful- yes, even when it rains (not that it has lately - close to summer like conditions again this weekend). We live in a little slice of heaven and we know it!
Luther Burbank referred to this area as "God's chosen place in all the world, as far as nature is concerned." Even if you don't believe in God there is absolutely something very special about Sonoma County. If you don't know who Luther Burbank was the above link is to the Wikipedia entry about him - astounding - reponsible for over 800 strains and varieties of plants. Does the Russet Potato, Shasta Daisy, Fire Poppy, Freestone Peach, or Santa Rosa Plum sound familiar? If you make it up (or down) this direction be sure to stop by Luther Burbank Home and Gardens in Santa Rosa or the Experimental Farm in Sebastopol.
