A poem by J.F. Conant

He who loves an old house never loves in vain. How can an old house used to sun and rain, to lilac and to larkspur and an elm above-ever fail to answer the heart that gives it love?

In the vineyard

Saturday, Joe went out to our little vineyard to prune our now 3 year old vines.
He brought me along to cheerlead, I suppose and gave me a glass of port to sip while he worked.

Puffing on a cigar, he cut back the vines  according to the book Wines and Vines directions. Hopefully this year, we will be able to harvest some grapes, and, perhaps, even be able to make our own wine.
