Expectations are often disappointed. We were prepared for mild mid 70’s weather in Carmel. In reality, it was mostly mid to low 60’s. Too chilly for us coming from high 90’s. So we were pleased one day to drive into the valley away from the sea.
The green rolling hills and farms of the valley were a breathe of fresh air away from the crowded area of all the towns bunched around Carmel.
A long planting of Lavender and the light purple flowers of Agapanthus or Lily of the Valley on the other side of the fence complemented each other nicely. They seemed to be thriving all over the areas we visited because of the mild winters.
Loved the open spaces and warmth of the valley. Just a country girl at heart.
