According to the Celtic Tree calendar today is the first day of Vine month, and the grapes on my little vine are ripening, whilst the birds and I keep a watchful eye!
There are quite a few vineyards nearby, and with global warming we might see them extending up into the north before long. People think that the Romans brought the vine to Britain, but I came across a New Scientist article  suggesting the possibility that Ancient Britons were amongst the first to cultivate the vine.
So remember your ancestors! Drink a little wine or a little grape juice today and welcome in the season of mellow fruitfulness! Hwyl /|\
