Mustard fields in Napa Valley
Last weekend, we visited Napa for a quick weekend getaway.
While driving in wine country, we came across vineyard after vineyard filled with yellow mustard flowers. It seems that mustard blooms are planted in vineyard as a natural pest control. And during January to March, you’ll see fields of mustard flowers blooming in the fields.
We couldn’t resist stopping on the side of the road to take photos of the flowers.
If you get the chance, go see them before the blooms disappear.
