And last, but not least...

...veraison in the Cabernet Sauvignon vines has begun, albeit very sporadic.  Caught in all their blushing glory late yesterday afternoon, this particular cluster of grapes includes a few shot berries, the odd dead flower part and lots of pesky powdery mildew cleistothecia.  Lovely, (not).

Exciting at this time of year.

I am eyeing some fantastic looking peaches and plums in my garden.

VG: While visiting Napa we often found and ate the luscious sun-warmed blackberries with great delight.

NHW: I love foraging. Whilst walking at the dog park yesterday with V2 I helped myself to blackberries and some very small, bright yellow plums (at least I think they were plums).
