May 6, 2013 - Vineyards



From, of all places, a travel website.

I see the vines. Where are the yards?

Unit of measurement - there's yards and yards o them vines.

I tried to find a photo of the only vineyard I've seen more than once.
Okay, I was actually looking for other photos, but it seemed like synchronicity.
It was taken in 1987 on a disposable camera. Not great quality.

But I thought it was dead romantic because it was just abandoned. It was when I spent some time at a school in France, and although I stayed in quasi-suburbia, the hillside village just 15 minutes walk away was stone-built and just breathing in made you feel French (unlike the school I went to, where I was over-dressed and the unwelcome recipient of young, male, French hormones.)

I walked past the ex-vineyard every day and was amazed that such a large space of fertile ground in an inhabited area was still vacant.
We're like the Japanese - small island, large population. We'll build anywhere that's big enough for a mouse to fart in.

Anyway I couldn't find the photo.
So ignore the above

The Windows desktop background, Bliss, is actually a vineyard out in California that was was cleared out. (some sort of blight, as I recall) The hillside is now covered in vines again.

Interesting bit of trivia. Thanks.

Here's the wiki entry that shows the comparison.

It always reminded me of the Palouse.
