Dog's eye view of wild mustard

by winecountrydog

Nice mellow day yesterday. A good day for walkies in the Russian River Valley.

old apples trees in field of blooming wild mustard
Jack Corgi and I did lots of sniffin'. Many pre-spring plants in the fields.

Bright yellow blossoms of wild mustard everywhere.

We find the apple orchards and mustard fields so arfully pretty.

Wild mustard — Synapis arvensis — is one of Sonoma County's most familiar signs that spring is around the corner.

how beautiful the blooming wild mustard on a late winter's day in West County!
After we enjoyed an afternoon snack at a farmers' market, we watched some birds out at the Laguna. Then we had a calming ride home.

Paw-note: Thanks to dog-ma for dooin' pics fur us.
