I love the shape of grape leaves — deeply lobed, with lovely curves and points and essential to the beautiful fruit they will eventually help create. They are especially beautiful in their youth — blushing, satiny and untouched by disfiguring phylloxera or other pests.

  1. Lovely shapes. I wouldn’t be surprised that if you watched the tendril on stop-motion film you might find it’s straightening out (and lengthening) with time rather than curving in?
    All the best 🙂
