Flowers of Rancho Tres Estrellas



It’s a gorgeous time of the year here at Rancho La Puerta.  Recently while taking a cooking class with Amy Pennington at our cooking school La Cocina Que Canta, we were also able to roam our six acre organic farm, Rancho Tres Estrellas.  I was blown away by the gorgeous flowers.  They seemed to be popping up all over the farm with little bees buzzing around.  It was a lovely day so of course I had to snap some photos and share them with you.  Hope you enjoy them!

You can read about my experience cooking with Amy Pennington here on the blog and don’t forget our amazing Culinary Week coming up in September, La Fiesta De La Cocina Que Canta!  If you love cooking with food and wine, you won’t want to miss it.
