Cecil’s Garden

IMGP4928

Cecil and his brother Gary have been tending our vines for the last couple of years.  Cecil’s out there day after day in all sorts of weather — hoeing weeds, tucking vines, pulling leaves, pounding posts, deploying netting — doing whatever needs to be done to help us grow high quality wine grapes. It’s only with the help of local hardworking, trustworthy farmers like them that we can keep everything going.

A couple of weeks ago, we noticed a plant growing in the bed of Cecil’s truck.  With the consistent rains and sunshine this summer, the scant soil there stayed moist and warm enough to incubate some sort of plant.

We marveled at the tenacity of nature, the faith of this plant to take root in such an infertile spot.

And then it bloomed.
