These are the remnants of a wall out by the vineyard cabin. I think it must have been a short wall and I don't know why it was there. The vines in this picture are not yet pruned, but it won't be long before they're cut back to a single cane.

At sunrise in the vineyard behind our house.

If you look closely (or click on the picture to enlarge it), you can see that the trees in the woods behind the vines are budding out. The normally drab bare branches are becoming tinted with the red and green of new buds. Leaves can't be far behind, right?


  1. Could it have been there to delineate property? Great shot, at any rate...

  2. Maybe that's all that's left of a building that was there many, many years ago.

  3. Lovely, as always.
    We have trees setting bud also & Cornus Moss is in full bloom!

  4. betty, thanks. I don't know. It might have been there just to use up some old stones that were lying around.

    starman, possibly...

    stephen, yay!


Tell me what you think!
