A fortnight later.

It has been two whole weeks since I finished pruning in Vinoland, but today, finally, I noticed budbreak in the Cabernet Sauvignon vines.  It's not that budbreak is behind this year, it's just that I have a very definite schedule of my own this spring.  The vines are all behaving well. Well, perhaps all except the Orange Muscat vines which have about 8-9 inches of growth already - the little whippersnappers!  Growing season 2017 is definitely upon us.

VG: "whippersnapper", I love that word, but can't say I've ever seen it more appropriately used.

NHW: I should have added, precocious!

Phlegmmy: Yes, but it will be like a jungle by the time I get back to the U.S.
