Live From

I'm playing along with 

live from Alabama
at my daughter's house.

My new favorite wine, from Morgan Creek Vineyards
Alabama Muscadine
a sweet table wine
(my daughter has this growing in her yard)

Can you spot the Muscadine grapes grow, in the photo below?

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods.
There is a rapture on the lonely shore.
There is a society, where none intrudes.
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar,
I love not Man the less, but nature more."
Lord Byron

From early morning stroll.

"Morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn in me."
Henry David Thoreau

It feels unusual to greet the morning, without my dogs, but thankfully their human daddy is caring on in my place.

Don't you just love the quiet beginning of a new day?

After the sun rises to shine -

Mystery plant- for me.

Must find out the names of all these friendly plants. I'm sure most of you know the name of this, and I believe we have them in Minnesota as well.

Enjoy your day and take good care of you.

Aren't you glad fall is here?

BTW, I find it hard to imagine how grapes grow without the birds eating them all.
