I photographed this grapevine a few weeks ago and it was showing its Autumn colours then.

I think I’d like to grow grapes on my new allotment πŸ™‚Β  However, although the warmer temps, generally, make this a reality, after visiting my windswept plot today I don’t think the prevailing winds would allow it!

  1. Beautiful shot. Based on my family’s experience growing fruit, including grapes, it is amazing what the hardier varieties can cope with.


      1. We did when we tried, that’s to say when we thinned them out a bit. The vine was there when we moved in to the house and was on the fence adjoining to next door to the west. For that reason the vine always tried to get to the sun and it was difficult to control. It did get some sun as the top of the fence (very high) was trellis. In the end we gave up.


            1. Agreed! I’ve become slightly obsessed with the quest for a shed. If I don’t carry on with the allotment I’ve decided I want one of my own in the garden πŸ™‚


    1. Thank you Truels! Many of the trees here are still green – although I saw one today – a maple – which was lovely yellow and red colours. I didn’t have my camera with me though.


  2. The way the sun lights up the back of some of the leaves creates a beautiful effect with the oranges/reds of the leaves in the foreground. You have some beautiful work.
