Harvesting


What a wonderful weekend to do yard work, the sun shone and the temperatures were perfect!

First we harvested some grapes from our "vineyard", well one grape plant actually, but a girl can dream. My husband did a little grouping of all things wine and took the lovely pic above. Alas, the wine was bought but the little grapes are all ours, this is the first year that we have gotten grapes from our little vine, delicious they are to.Here is a closer view, there are still quite a lot more left for picking, it is nice that they are ripening off little by little.The sky was quite beautiful, all fluffy like cotton balls floating by.The trees are starting to turn the most wonderful colors, these were not far from our house and were just begging to be photographed.

Yes indeed it was a lovely weekend, hope yours was as wonderful.
