This beautiful weather we're having right now is doing everybody good, even if the timing is a little off. The trees and other plants are soaking up the sun. Buds are beginning to form. The ground is warming, too, so I imagine the grasses and other perennials are starting to produce new growth. Our lilac bush is already covered with fat buds.

A view out over the vineyards as the sun rose last Sunday morning. There's still a lot of pruning to be done.

The only downside to this warm and dry February is that the grape growers are worried. If the vines get off to an early start, and there's a freeze before spring, the year's crop could be damaged. Let's keep our fingers crossed that that doesn't happen.

  1. If you're a wine grower there must always be something to worry about. The sunrise photo is a good reason to live among the vines.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
