We had such a lovely walk around the vineyard with Yuko yesterday. As always I took a lot of photos so I decided to split them over two posts. Here are the rest of the photos.
A short walk from the back gates of the neighboring vineyard we came across what seemed to be just a pile of rocks. Yuko thought it was a stone hut that had caved in so she and Bob went to check it out.
And guess what…Yuko was correct! A view from the hole in the roof.
It does resemble a pile of rocks though.
Not sure what these bugs are on this beautiful flower but at least they were sharing it.
Love the bright blue sky and the elephant in the cloud. You see it, right?
View of our village in the distance.
New work going on in this plot. From our kitchen window last week I saw the tractor pulling the trailer full of these stakes go by. I noticed that they were smaller than the stakes we have seen elsewhere in the vineyard so I was interested in what they were being used for. I’ll be returning to this plot to see the finished product.
True signs of Spring. The cycle of life continues.
The neighboring winery that belongs to the back gates I posted about yesterday.
Another stone hut but one we had visited before.
I wonder how many photos I have taken of these wildflowers over the past few Springs here. Whatever that number it evidently is not enough because I always have to take more. They look like crepe paper.
There a lot of succulents on the property but we had never seen these purple ones. To be honest I wanted to dig some up to plant in our garden…but I didn’t.
Almost back home.
A treat when we walked up the lane near our house…the first yellow rose has bloomed on our neighbor’s rosebush.
Kudos to Bob for spotting it way up there.
