Spring has sprung here, the birds are busy making nests and I’m trying to catch up in the vineyard. After repairing the winter storm damage to the road and parking lot I’m busy mowing, weed wacking and suckering the vines. Besides all the new life the beauty of the field above the vineyard is distracting. Purple vetch is everywhere – interspersed with the gold of California Poppies. Outdoors is a great place to be right now – I think I’ll have to get away from this keyboard!
