A little local color among our wild grapes.

TURNING PURPLE — Wild grapes ripen to a deep purple.
RAISINS — Fifteen days after the top photo was taken, drought shows its fingerprints on these grapes. Berries lower in the cluster have shriveled; unripe green berries are beginning to wrinkle before any of the purple pigment appears.

  1. Wow – my wild violets have wilted away as well – we’re hoping a predicted week of rain will bring some things back here, but it looks like many of those grapes are goners… great shots!

    1. I hope the forecasters are correct and you get that rain! I was hoping some of the birds and other critters would be getting those plump grapes, while they’re still a source of water.
