Vineyard Clusters blooming at Bingham Vineyards
I am trying to provide current updates on the vineyards and the crops, but I am still just getting the hang of this blogging stuff, so these pictures are a week or so old. Cliff & I took some friends on a tour of the vineyard on May 30th. They had a nephew visiting that is thinking of changing his profession from an engineer to a farmer. What is the poor guy thinking? Farming is probably the most stressful job there is, right? … Or maybe having a winery is? Anyway, the nephew is looking at the idea of putting in a vineyard or a farm. So … we went for a tour.
It really is beautiful isn’t it? Just beautiful. … I guess that is why we keep doing it.
I know you might rather see vineyard pictures, but here is an update on the swallows: babies in the nest at the front porch. Yes, I was cleaning the bird poop from off the patio at the front door. And yes, we were having company for dinner last night. I looked up, and what did I see, but the babies watching me work.
“White Sands” is available as a 12″ x 16″ signed and numbered print. See more of Peggy’s paintings at her web site PeggyBingham.com You may contact Peggy about paintings, prints, or notecards at PaintingsbyPBingham@gmail.com
We had dinner on the patio yesterday evening with our friends Neal and Janice Newsom of Newsom Vineyards after our recent trip to Granbury, Texas for the Texas Viticulture & Enology Research Symposium. We noticed a new swallow nest by the back door.
