A Shrovetide sunset.

It hasn't rained in almost a week, yay!  Since last Thursday it has been frosty every morning and sunny every afternoon - my favourite type of winter weather.  Consequently, pruning has resumed in the valley: the east side of the local Far Niente Chardonnay vineyard was pruned today.
Vinodog 2 and I had a lovely walk after I got home from work, enjoying the rich hues that the setting sun cast over Mt. George and the eastern hills.  Then it was home for dinner and pancakes, yum!

NHW: 'Pancake Tuesday' pancakes are more similar to crêpes than American pancakes.
The only time I (halfheartedly) put a little effort into wine-pairing pancakes I chose a CS, simply because that is what I had open at the time. I eat them too quickly to bother with wine.
