Watercolor Workshop and Grape Harvest in September

The wine making equipment is on the property
Next week I will post my first painting of a working vineyard.
The October harvest might be early this year because of the HOT DRY weather. September will be a busy month. I scheduled a watercolor workshop September 13 ~ 14 to paint the fall colors of Bishop, Ca. Looks like the grape harvest might happen late September.

Vineyard Care 2010

We placed the bird netting on each row of vines. Tied the ends and bottom then sat back to admire the vineyard. Within a short time a bird flew into the netting then walked under the one spot I didn't tie. Trapped and flying in a panic under the netting my hubby walked over lifted one end of the netting and the bird flew off. A bird experience I didn't expect!
