The vines are going shaggy with the spell of bright days & frosty nights these last seven days or so. Their leaves turning brown crispy then falling off, whilst others give up their last grasp with a spectacular colour show of reds & golds. The neat rows of vines with ier summer haircuts all trim are going wild & spikey, like punk rockers, their hair all rebel. It is at this time that the wild trailing nature of the vine is loosen from it’s trellising & training & disciplining. In a month’s time, the annual task of pruning will begin & the cycle will start over again.
