First Day of Spring

I've spotted some huge grasshoppers in the yard lately and I thought that one was on the grape vine, nope, a bunch of grapes forming. I gave this plant to Roger on his birthday in 2008 and while it grew very well last year it was void of fruit. I'm taking the 10 or so bunches of grapes I counted as a good sign, especially on the eve of the day I start heading his way. It's been over two months since I was able to visit him in the Greenbrae Nursing home but by Monday afternoon I will be at his side. We're off to Redondo Beach tomorrow where mom and Stacy will spend a few days with my youngest daughter and her guys.

oh yes that is just awesome! they normally get a good first year in and maybe two to establish, but now you should have grapes! the first few years were not the best but now they are so fabulous that I have to beat the wasps to harvest! good luck!

My wishes for you are that the appearance of the grapes is a sign of good changes in other aspects of your life.

Have a stress-free trip. I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you.

How wonderful to have grapes on the vine! It's a good sign of renewed life like the tadpoles I found in our pond today. Have a safe and happy trip. xx
