From spring to summer the vineyard wakes to full life as we watch each day unfold. While we focus on the vines,  so much other life abounds as well. As the only green landscape in the neighborhood, everyone wants to come visit. Some make it easily through or over the fence: birds, rabbits, ground squirrels, insects to name a few. For others the fence forms a successful barrier: deer, coyotes, jackrabbits surround us, but don’t enter. And then the dynamic begins–everyone is searching for food while the vines stand in place creating food, shelter and home for us all.
