Grapes and oleanders

A festoon of unripe grapes alongside the drive

A festoon of unripe grapes on the edge of the drive

There are grapes growing along the drive opposite the oleanders.

They’re purple wine grapes that make good eating – an explosion of sweet juice in the mouth giving way, however, to a residue of seeds and skin which I usually spit out.

The trick is to put several grapes in your mouth at once.
