Seeing red

It may be because there's still a lot of pruning to do in these sections, but in certain light the vineyards look tinged with red. I see the pruners out every day in all kinds of weather working hard. Right now it's very wet out there and quite muddy in places. Not a very comfortable work environment.

Low diffuse sunlight shows up the red color in the grape vines.

It's getting to be time to start working in the yard again to clean up winter's mess and finish pruning shrubs and trees. Right now it's too wet to do much; the ground is squishy, especially in the mole towns. I particularly want to dig up and divide the rhubarb before it sprouts. I may have to suck it up and get out there despite the mud.


  1. How often do you dig your rhubarb up, Walt?

  2. Salut, Walt. On dirait que ça te gêne de marcher dans la boue.

  3. It is most fascinating seeing the cycles of grape vines.

  4. tim, this will be the second time in 12 years. They say it should be done every 5 years or so.

    dean, lol!

    michael, it is!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
