New beginning

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 13 July 2012 in Plant & Nature.

As promised, here is the photo of the new shoot from one of the vines at Meerendal Wine Estate. Taken after the vines had had their long recovery rest during the cold winter months.

The grapes from this would form part of the 2012 vintage.

Title from the song from Tracy Chapman

Have a lovely weekend!

I had a look through your archive and it brings back sweet memories.
I am originally from Durbanville. Only go there for holidays to visit my parents and brother.
This is a beautiful capture with great light and composition.

@Elsabe: Hello Elsabe - thanks for your lovely comment! I see you are currently in Fourways - my wife and I stayed in Gallo Manor for about a year and a half, and looking at your photos of the birds, it brings back good memories. We get quite a variety of the feathered friends here in Durbanville, but nothing like Jo'burg's selection. Take care.
