The Vineyard In The Morning

Nearly every day Callie gets two walks out into the vineyard. Ken and I take turns; one of us goes in the morning and the other in the evening, then we switch the next day.

Just starting out on the dirt road behind the house.

Since we're in the vineyard so regularly, we don't often notice the constant changes taking place out there. This is how things look this first week of July. The views are sequential, seen as we walk away from the house out toward the west.

The rows of vines punctuated by pickets.

You can click on the vineyard category (below or in the sidebar) to see the vines at other times of the year if you'd like.

View across a little valley that's the beginning of a stream which runs down to the river.

Ken and I post pictures from out there all the time. The vines have become a part of our daily scene - in fact they're visible from both bedroom windows as well as the window in the bathroom. And, we drink the wine made from their grapes!

Looking toward the northeast, into the sun, out at the far point of the walk.


  1. You and Ken walk Callie every day in the vineyard. You and Ken have each lost 15 to 20 pounds in the last year.

    I need a dog!!

    p.s. Love the periodic puppy pics!

  2. bettyann, we both gained weight after our previous dog, Collette, died in 2006. Having a dog helps get some daily exercise in, that's for sure!

  3. I remember your beautiful Collette.


  4. How pretty is that! Our friends down at Metung (where we spent this past weekend) have vines on their property. It's so peaceful waking up to the view.

  5. evol, your trip sounded like a nice getaway!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
