Flowers of the Sun

Sunflowers, like endorphins, make us happy.

It is sunflower season here in Yolo County, California, home to the Honey and Pollination Center. Huge swaths of sunflowers are in bloom all over the county. Along major highways, town edges and along wiggly two lane roads. More and more folks are getting into their cars driving out to see the sunflowers, and feeling happy.

We understand that not everyone that reads this newsletter is in Northern California and maybe, just maybe your sunflowers haven’t bloomed yet – but they will.  And when they do, you too will feel happy.

Lemons: A Harvest for Now and the Future

The Honey and Pollination Center is located in the Robert Mondavi Institute on the University of California, Davis campus. A group of buildings housing the departments of Viticulture and Enology and Food Science and Technology and all their related labs and offices surround the centerpiece: The Good Life Garden.
