Fresh new leaves on the grapevine I planted last fall.
Some of you may remember this post about my Venetian shrine and the overgrown vine surrounding the shrine. I had to remove the vine because it was developing some very thick branches and pulling down the trellis. I replaced it with a Thompson grapevine. The vine is already reaching the shrine and soon I'll have to trim it to prevent it from hiding the Madonna.
Yesterday I spotted a tiny fresh cluster of grapes.
Also last fall we planted a fig tree. This one is in a big planter. It arrived completely bare but in the last month, it has been furiously growing new leaves.
Happy weekend! :)
