Grapes and wine production are becoming popular alternatives to tobacco production here in NC ... but I can't help but dream of Italy whenever I think 'grape!'

We've had rain all week -- a bit more and we'll be out of 'drought' status! YAHOO! The rains are plumping up our tomatoes, vegetables of all kinds, and yes -- those North Carolina grapes!

Beautiful, playful grapes, Lin. The Italian grapes don't have your grogeous colours yet.

LOL, I love the title: playful grapes. I can just see them romping around in the rain while everyone sleeps! Nice colors!!! They look delicious!

Beautifully loose and colorful! So much of our ag land is being turned into vineyards, I wonder sometimes if the plan is to just drink instead of eat! LOL Glad you're getting your needed rains!

Beautiful vivid colours... you are making justice to this inviting fruit. And I like the way you painted the folliage as well. Nice one.
