What do you think you’re doing?

It’s winter you know!


Grape Vine Leaf 2

I’ve seen this grape vine get confused before. I don’t know if it is rain or sun that triggers it to produce new leaves, but they won’t survive. Yes, it is still mid-winter here in Cape Town; and the sky really is that blue!

While checking out my apple tree the other day, and wondering when the leaves would start to fall, I noticed new growth there on the end of some branches!

I don’t know what is going on, but surely it would be better to wait till Spring, in September!

      haha Yes – no freezing here. πŸ™‚
      I think it was the warm Berg winds off the mountains the other week (preceding a storm front) that might have triggered the growth. πŸ™‚

      It is odd here in CT. Some plants like my camellia and poinsettia are just coming into full bloom!
      But the grape vines are only supposed to grow in summer, November, and have grapes in late summer, February!
