Peeping out from seemingly dead branches, a few new leaves sprout on my grape vine.
You can still see the remains of last season’s bunches of grapes.
My grapevine normally only comes alive again after winter, when it suddenly bursts forth with bright green leaves all over the vines, in October.
The grapes ripen over the summer months, becoming large green bunches ready for picking towards the end of summer, in February.
I’ve no idea why my grape vine got confused.
Doesn’t it know it’s winter here in Cape Town, with more storms on the way?
Maybe it was too much sun a while back?
And we all know that only Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun!
