Or, more accurately, un-wired. These are some of the guide wires from a vineyard parcel that's being dug out. I'm assuming the parcel will be re-planted with new grapes, but if I understand the process, that probably won't happen until next year. There are three larger parcels nearby that were plowed up last year. I'm expecting that they'll be planted with new grapes this summer, once the warm weather (high hopes) sets in.

Bundles of rusty old wire.

We're back in a chilly spell. I haven't seen any freeze warnings, yet. Frost danger lasts through mid-May in France, so we're not out of the woods.This morning's low is about 7ºC (45ºF) at the house. The high is expected to reach a lofty 13ºC (about 55ºF) this afternoon.


  1. We're looking at a lofty 21C today. Do they reuse that old wire?

  2. I was going to ask the same question, Mitchell. I imagine sturdy wire like that is expensive. You’ve captured a good variety of colors in the grasses and other plants, Walt.

  3. mitch, I don't think they do. I'm sure it's recycled somehow.

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
