Wow, look at the grape crop ripening on the overhead trellis Frank made for us. When the vines fill in completely we'll have a beautiful shaded "room" with grapes hanging down all over.Virginia Waldron















Here in Australia, summer occurs during the months of December, January and February. Our grapes ripen in March and April, which is the same as September and October in the Northern Hemisphere. Virginia Waldron

These are some sunflowers that popped up this year.Virginia Waldron
