I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Grape vineyard~~Watery Wednesday~~Feb. 4, 2009




While driving home from school last week, I went a different route and found this field watering its grapes. I could actually hear the water bubbling up through the irrigation lock. It was the only noise in the field. It was absolutely quiet out there except for the bumping and gurgling of the water~ How peaceful~ For other watery photos, please visit: http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

You have a good ear and eye to catch this scene! I hope we get some rain in the next few days! Enjoy the day.

Never seen a view like that, wonderful gnarled vines! And your description was perfect with it - great WW post!

That looks really interesting. I would have loved to hear that gurgling sound. We used to have some vineyards out here but they're all housing now.

So, they fill the trench between the rows of plants? I didn't know that's how they watered a field. Very interesting!

I also like the gnarled grape vines, and the whole idea of how to water them! I never knew that before.
Thanks for sharing!
