The vineyards here in the Bordeaux region are getting to that interesting stage when the vineyards are half brown and half green. The dull brown aspect of winter is behind us, while the full verdant geen of summer lies tantalingly ahead. Soon the vines will form flowers, a crucial time of year for the development of a healthy crop, so finges crossed for good weather.

There has been plenty of rain around so the vineyards are full of tractors spraying to prevent mildew.
