So shouldn't we wait for his ok?

BTW, I remember grabbing the orchard just a few weeks ago...
I could do a follow-up grab, though, to see the progression.

So, calling NZ! Or not?
two pics not actually required,mine was just a illustration of what i thought was unusual.Given the light(house) and a tag game i bet most would take the first pic,the reverse pic is surely unusual.I am not gonna be judge and jury, if the poster truly thinks he has an unusual shot thats good enough for me.

But I did not know that it gets down to -8C down there. It doesn't that much colder here usually. We may have two weeks or so with -15C or less per winter, but not regularly and not in a row.
Back in Berlin it used to be -20C regularly... That was nasty.

So I guess I am impressed. That IS cold then.
It's a positively balmy 5.2 now, got to 12 today which was nice mind you the wind chill (apparent temp)didn't get over 6,
damm didn't go get the tag to busy drinking coffee. -20 no thanks blackpearl i'll stay here

You will have to agree that grapes are fruits. So I think you could very well call this a "fruit growing business" !





I didn't want to show you the same cider mills again, and so I thought a shot of the great Lavaux vineyards would be cool.
I take this road every other day to avoid the highway. It follows Lake Geneva and passes through the Unesco World Heritage of the Lavaux region. On the first picture you can see a corner of Lake Geneva on the very left and a bit of the Alps of Fribourg and Valais in the background.
If you haven't been there - check it out one day. I'll be happy to show you around.


I couldn't get another tag today as I was in a hurry and wanted to wait for approval first. So if this is ok I will get a new tag tomorrow.

Cheers all over the world!

Ummmmm, Wine!

I am sincerely jealous of where you live and ride. And yes indeed ... grapes (converted of course) are my favorite fruit! LOL!

Tag On!

Jealousy is a capital sin!
Anyway, I know what you mean - I've been jealous of the people living here until I fulfilled my childhood dream to move here.

But as a human being you are always jealous of what you don't have at the moment... So I am sure that you fellow taggers have a lot up your sleeves that has potential to make me jealous...

I like the global tag game not at least because every photo posted shows me something new from somewhere new.

Alright, I really gotta go to bed now. Already fell asleep on the couch during the movie..
As I said, I'll go for the new tag tomorrow! Sorry for the little delay, guys.

And it has been like that for at least 1000 years. Maybe even 2000. I guess that's why it has been put on the UNESCO world heritage list.

You may wanna check this out as well!


------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back to the game!
Finally it stopped raining and I was able to go for a little ride and found something really nice. I hope it's global, too.
I wanna see a building covered in ivy.

Like this:



Or this (a gorgeous little church in the town of Bex):




Sorry once more for the delay...
Have fun and let the photos come!

Does it count if you don't move your bike?

I was actually hoping for something, well, more "exciting"..

It seems to be difficult, though.. What about all the other players here? No ivy?

Don't know what the rules say about not moving the bike for a tag actually..
Anyway, to keep the game rolling (and if nobody else wants to present any cool photos on this) - I'd say you got it.

The garage is definitely vine covered.

I am constantly fighting to keep the vines off of the roof and gutters.

Well if no one objects I went for a ride this morning and found a dinosaur, just wandering around the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Museum.


Let see if anyone else has dinosaurs in their backyard.

Sorry about the lousy pic. In the rain with a cell phone in a hurry doesn't make for artistry.

Now find a curved building....

Not so much ivy but down South where I'm from we have something called kudzu. It is covering everything. It was brought here from Asia to control soil erosion but it doesn't even do that. Now it is out of control. LINK
