Over the fence


Notice anything different??? 

The view over our back fence has changed a little.  The vineyard is undergoing a few changes, sections of vines are being removed to make way for new grape varieties.

But first, the soil is turned and corn is to be planted.  Mr H was loving the green bare land........somewhere to practice his golf swing.

Beyond this patch are further hectares of grape vines.

Now we are just watching for the corn to start showing.  Love the sound of corn fields rustling when there is a night breeze.  I just try not to think of the film "Children of the Corn".
Over the other side of the fence there are new vines going in..........

 And these lovely vines are in the organic section - no harmful sprays used here.  This area always looks a little wilder.

This time of year the vineyard gets busier, there is a lot to do before the busy Wine Vintage Season hits in February.  That's when I become a Wine Widow.......both the boys were born during "Vintage".  How is that for timing???

Pinch myself sometimes that we live here.

Happy week lovelies!

  4. What a stunning sight! I would enjoy having this view any day!!! And yes I like the sound of corn gave me a chuckle about that movie!! Happy living pal! Nicole xoxo
