~The Grapes of Wrath~

You know, I'm embarrassed to say I've never read the book OR seen the movie but I think I'll put it on my "bucket list". I know it's a classic and shame on me for letting it go unread & unseen this long.  I didn't go to a winery, these are actually growing on our property. You know, there's an Italian proverb that says, "One basket of grapes does not make a vintage." So...then...what do I have with so few hanging from a fence? Exactly that, a few hanging from the fence! lmao
They are not sweet yet, & I'm not sure if they even will. So....I guess I'll just have to eat one a day until they are all gone! I'll get back to you!
Happy Snapping!


  1. This is a gorgeous photo! Love the light.

  2. I read the book back in high school, some 36 years ago. I grew up visiting family that had strawberry fields in Watsonville, CA, and Orange groves in Oxnard, CA. The work is hard, but it makes for great memories.

    "In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage."
    The Grapes of Wrath
    Chapter 25

    John Steinbeck: American writer of The Grapes of Wrath, the 1939 Pulitzer prize-winning novel. Set in the Great Depression, it tells the story of a family of poor sharecroppers on their failing Oklahoma farm, who travel to California in search of work and dignity.

  3. Gorgeous colours and bokeh in the background with the fence. Lovely work!
