California Grapes On The Vine In Mid August

Add to Technorati Favorites add to kirtsy Digg!

This beautiful young August vine is growing at a community garden in Palo Alto, California. I immediately knew I wanted to use it for Word-Filled Wednesday when I saw the fencepost from afar. It was a serene walk amongst lovely fruits, vegetables and flowers on a cool yet sunny mid-summer's day. Wishing everyone an equally lovely Wednesday.


  1. Hi Joy, this is a very lovely picture and encouraging verse. Great visual for this precious verse from John 15! Reminds me that I must abide in Christ for without Him I can do nothing. It is so wonderful that you can have a walk amongst lovely fruits, vegetables and flowers. Thanks for sharing with us. Take care and God bless you!

  2. Wow! What a beautiful the way it makes a cross, and the way you've overlapped that precious verse.


  3. Oh how lovely. Tempts me to go find some pictures taken in our Barossa Valley wine growing region in South Australia. I adore the photography among the vines.
    My glory vine was pruned to an inch of its life today.......more glorious color next Autumn.

  4. Oh, that is lovely and a great reminder. Blessings to you!

  5. Joy, I'm so glad you didn't pass this picture up when you saw it. Perfect!

    Happy WFW!

  6. Beautiful! I love how you scripted this photo!

  7. Joy, I ALWAYS LOVE your pictures! And I completely agree with you as this picture does give one a sense of God's serenity in His creation.

    And of course, the Scripture is beyond wonderful as just like the grapes, it is from God! And everything He does is AWESOME!

    Much love in Christ,

  8. Blessings Joy...Such an exquisite vine and verse so perfectly placed!
    I can learn much from you! I'm glad that you enjoyed your serene walk and shared this with us! Abiding in the Vine have a wonderful JOY full day! Thank you!
