8 thoughts on “The color of August

  1. I remember guests from S. California visiting the Inn at Ventana, years ago.
    She and her husband went for a canyon walk. She brought back a beautiful wreath of this “absolutely beautiful” red-leafed vine, and adorned her neck with it.
    The results were stunning.

  2. I was just commenting yesterday that the beautiful fiery red swaths on the mountainside ironically are poison oak!

  3. I named my daughter August partly because I love the way everything looks and smells in Big Sur then. Oh and she has red hair too lol!

  4. Similar to Ventana story…had a friend who worked at Robles del Rio in Carmel Valley. With an upcoming wedding, he added this beautiful “red vine” to the bridal party bouquets.
