The morning after a snowstorm is the rainbow of winter. Grey skies are replaced with crystal blue skies and the sun glinting on snow has always looked like diamonds to me.
Pulling on my favorite “wellies”, we headed just around the corner to Burnley Station Road and the nearest grapevines. Sandy Branch Vineyard pristinely awaited with not a footprint in sight. Nothing is prettier than unblemished snow covered ground and I reluctantly waded in, disturbing the fluff in my quest. Heavily snow-laden deer fencing warned me not to approach closely. Darn! I longed to climb over and get a better vantage point, but my husband reminded me that water plus electricity are to be avoided at all cost. This was the best I could capture, wish you could experience this beauty first-hand.
I requested photos from friends to contribute to this photo blog and Kat Schornberg Barnard from Keswick Vineyards and Paulette Musselman from Glass House Winery took some great pictures!
I love living in this part of Virginia, changing seasons, fabulous scenery, great climate, history and more. By the way, the photos at the beginning of this blog are from a home which is presently on the maket and Yes! includes a producing vineyard. Call me or e-mail me if you’re interested! I’d love to show you this property!
