Summer 1 of 2
Even in summer the lawn around the house stays green and the irrigated fields are lush.
You're welcome to wander anywhere on the property. Pick wild blackberries in summer or apples in fall. Bring out a picnic, or settle down with a glass of wine. Choose the cluster of wicker chairs with cushions on the side lawn, under the walnut tree. Or venture up the hillside to one of the quiet spots that look out over the valley.

On a summer afternoon the shade is welcome, and the breeze is lovely.
