Just one more

After this I'll lay off the grape vines for a while. Or not. This is close-up of the vine tendrils as they search for and wrap around anything that can support them. Some of the curly-cues can get quite elaborate. As a testament to their strength, the hardened woody tendrils are often left wrapped around the guide wires after the vines are pruned away in the fall and winter.

This morning was a bit chilly. Clear skies overnight again. I had my t-shirt, a sweatshirt, and a fleece on for this morning's walk. There's only a slight breeze, so it didn't feel too cold and the rising sun warmed things up nicely.

I turned the sprinkler on the vegetable garden to give it a good soak. It's still dry as a bone out there. But the plants are growing. The corn is as high as a hedgehog's eye. And the lima beans are sprouting.


  1. Congratulations on 28 years together... that's quite an achievement. I know, because we just celebrated 34.

  2. You've been talking about grape vines lately? I hadn't noticed.
    And how is it that the whole world knows that it's your Anniversary and I don't? Does that make me a bad Follower? I'm so sorry. But besides that, Happy Anniversary to the both of you! That is Super News!
    Your Friend, m.

  3. Happy 28th! And many more!

  4. My man and I are going to celebrate our 25th year in July. Congrats to you and all of your photos are beautiful, except the rabbit, and the grape vines look great.

  5. Happy Anniversary!
    Bon Anniversaire!!
