Where the grapes are

I'm seeing a little color on the grapes along our walking route. I haven't looked closely enough to tell if it's grapes starting to ripen or grapes that have been burned by the sun, essentially turning into raisins. I suppose I should look a little closer. There's no color on these grapes because they're white grapes, chenin blanc, I believe.

I think these are chenin grapes, used for late harvest (sweet) wine.

Our current heat wave continues. The morning lows are getting higher along with the afternoon highs. It's predicted to last until Sunday when cooler air is expected to move in. That will likely bring storms and some rain. I'll be sure to let you know. ⛈⛈⛈☂☂☂


  1. Same here☀️☀️. The cellars are the coolest place. Haa,we loved the heat in our 'salad days'. Pats.

  2. Should be an interesting wine year

  3. The leaves look very good too. Do you ever ‘liberate’ some of them to make stuffed grape leaves?

  4. I'm always amazed at how densely packed in with grapes that the grappe is when you take photos in the vineyards.

  5. pats, ain't it the truth!

    travel, we shall see...

    bettyann, we use the grape leaves from the grapes in our back yard. They don't get sprayed with anything. We made a big batch earlier this summer.

    judy, I know what you mean. They're not like eating grapes.

  6. I'm enjoying wearing long pants and not being warm. Can't believe your heat wave. And now I'll go back to singing Where the Boys Are.


Tell me what you think!
