In the Vineyard

Vineyards are doing so much to keep the agricultural nature of the North Fork alive and well. There are seventeen wineries within five miles of our home so we always have something to do on a gray day when we have guests as all of them offer tastings, some have tours and on the weekends there is often live music. One can sip to bluegrass, jazz, rock or perhaps a guitar and flute classical duo. A few of the wineries show the work of local artists which adds richness to the experience. This season I followed the growth of the vines with a few pictures. These shots do very little to show the overall beauty of the vineyards at different times of day or in changing light or weather. Apologies for the blur of the first picture, the only one I had of first buds.
