Wild Weather!

Last night was stormy and living in a house surrounded by trees, it sounded like they were all about to crash in on us…and one did!  The view from our backdoor this morning…firewood delivered to the doorstep 🙂

It has been a case of ‘four seasons in one week’ around here.  I took the photo below on Monday morning when we started the day with minus three.  And yet at week’s end we have strong northerlies and a predicted high of 23 oC.

Anyway the strong winds have accelerated the loss of leaves from the vines.  Once the leaves are all off, we will begin pruning.
