Yountville, California

We visited the new chicken coop at The French Laundry garden in Yountville, CA on our way to Bouchon Bakery after spending the night with friends. The chickens are small and have a great home.
Liked this purple variation on bachelor buttons growing in The French Laundry garden (bleuet is French for Cornflower/Bachelor Button, as these flowers grow in corn fields).
For dinner we enjoyed beef short ribs at Ad Hoc restaurant. We were invited to stay the night at friends' home in northeast Napa Valley.
Earlier in the day we tested Ad Hoc restaurant's new "take out" lunch program called Addendum (Thursday-Friday-Saturday 11 am-2 pm only). Arriving late, with an hour to closing, they were out of the barbeque option, so we tried the fried chicken. It came to the lovely picnic benches behind the restaurant in biodegradable containers.
