Red, white ... and grey

Yesterday was cloudy and cool - a wonderful Cape Town day to recover from the searing hot Southeaster wind and sun. Groot Constantia Estate is looking magnificent - all the vines are starting to produce grapes, and many of the rows of vines have a rose bush at each end. Popular legend has it that the roses will give early warning of the arrival of a disease or pest, but I hear that it a bit of an urban (rural?) legend. It really does look pretty.


  1. I've also heard the reason for the roses and has always wondered if it true or not.
