Vineyard Bursts into Life

The cherry trees (left) escaped the May frosts and their lovely white blossom has given way to dark red cherry buds. The Siegerrebe vines (right) were the first to swell their buds in spring and suffered some 40% loss of buds due to frost, but the remainder are bursting into life to reveal primitive bunches of grapes. The rest of the vineyard is slowly bursting into life, especially after the longed for rain of the last 24 hours.
