The morning was gorgeous and this small 1891 ranch and orchard is so charming. It's also a canning operation. The gift shop sells wonderful jams, jellies, and other goodies. There are the fruit trees, an old barn, lots of rusty old equipment, and a beautiful yellow house. I settled on a view from under a tree of some of the fruit trees, a stone building, and a birdhouse which is a small version of the old barn. It's great to have permission to paint at the ranch and see such a large turn-out of painters.
