Vine entwineVine entwine

Just outside the house there’s a grape vine which is being trained to climb onto wires atop a pergola to give some shade in the summer. The vine has almost lost all its leaves at the time of the year. I was intrigued by the amount of entwining that the vine had done upon a grass stalk as the vine searched for something to climb along (the grass stalk had been pulled horizontal).

Another cool morning this morning being -8C/17.5F (although it did reach 17C/62F during the day). Such is winter at 1020m/3400ft asl in inland Australia.
