Spring Watch March 24, 2010

We've begun a watch for spring to alert people to the progress of the season as it awakens across the vineyard and region. The most visible sign so far is the grass becoming noticeably green, with flocks of robins very frequent. Sap is flowing from cuts where vines have been pruned. The National Forest is showing extra color, the result of bud swell in several different tree species. Will be sure to photograph the Redbud (Cercis canadensis) when they show good color in the forest, but it still a little early.
