Grape Leaves in Sunshine

Life in Christian County, Kentucky... More About Trees and Plants...



Grapevine in sunshine

We had a lot of fog yesterday morning, and when the sun finally broke through, the grape leaves were outlined by beads of dew.

I tried once to dig out this grapevine, but it refused to die. You can read its history in the post, "House Wrens in the Grape Arbor".

Nice photo of the beaded grape-leaves, Genevieve!

Thanks, Larry. You know, at the home decor stores, sometimes you see silk grape vines with sparkles on the leaves, and I guess this is what they're trying to imitate. :)

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
