Past due.

It rained for most of today, most of the week actually.  Just enough drizzly rain to make my hair annoyingly curly, but not enough to put a dint in California's water shortage woes.  However, the amount of precipitation has been sufficient to make the first application (for the season) of wettable sulphur impossible.  The Orange muscat vines have about 10 inches of growth already and look fantastically healthy, but they are at the stage were they should be due a second application of powdery mildew killing sulphur, not awaiting their first.  Mother Nature is not cooperating.  So, besides my tonsorial-tribulations, I have running through my head tortuous images of the unfettered sporulation of Uncinula necator slowly creeping over my pretty, green, succulent Orange muscat shoots.  Hang in there buddies.

Vinogirl, it is well know that bad-hair days trip irresistibly into nightmares ;-) However, planting such beautiful pictures as displayed here should summon Tinkerbelle and her fairy-dust!

NHW: During wet weather periods I have lots of nightmares :)
Re: picture. It is the subject matter which is beautiful, not the photograph.

Hope you don't mind me being frivolous on your dime ;-)
