Boundaries

Here I am with some very literal illustrations of boundaries for my first post in over a month…

Vineyard in Lanzarote 1

Vineyard in Lanzarote 1

In the Lanzarote vineyards, each vine is surrounded by its own boundary wall, to protect it from the wind and to retain the moisture from the morning dew to sustain the plant.

  1. Nice to see you back Sue 🙂
    This looks like a very labour intensive way to grow vines. You have to wonder why they bother. Did you try any wine from Lanzarote?

  2. These are fascinating shots, and not a little eerie. But really, Sue, if you had not told us, I wouldn’t have recognised these as vineyards. My head was wending towards mysterious prehistoric structures of the sort archaeologists call ‘ritual sites’ when they can’t think of a more practical use.

  3. Amazing images, Sue. Thanks for showing me this. It’s not at all how I imagined vineyards to look. 🙂

  4. Welcome back, Sue! These photos are fascinating – thr environment looks so harsh and yet thanks to the stone fences the vines survive.

  5. I was delighted to see you back in my inbox. And with such an interesting post. The walls are beautifully curved and the wine must be expensive. I drink to your return. Are you satisfactorily settled?

    • Sue

      Thanks for drinking to my return, Meg! I shall toast you back tomorrow! I shall be slowly easing myself back into blogging, and I am settling into my new abode nicely, thanks

  6. love it there – and did find a nice Lanzarote white tipple that we had to try a few, nay many times, to ensure it was up to scratch.

  7. Hi Sue, now that really is different take on the vineyard isn’t it?! Fascinating! Glad you had a good break 🙂

    • Sue

      Thanks, Jane, my break was just what I needed. I’m feeling mŷ way around here, just been into London and discovered there are a number of ways of doing the journey from here, but not quite as simple as it was from my previous abode…..but takes no longer

  8. Welcome back Sue – who would have imagined, vines on Lanzarote’s dry, dusty landscape

  9. That is really bizarre, it must be worth the effort I suppose. Really good to see you back Sue, I hope you’re rested and well 🙂

  10. Wellcome back to the cyber world. Wow, what a fantastic image … and interesting, never seen vine plants/bushes grown like this. LIke in bowl. Beautiful. Excellent entry.

  11. These are awesome images, Sue. And welcome back!

  12. Great to hear that you have settled in, Sue.
    The shots from Lanzarote really show that black forbidding landscape so well. I have never been, but always find it fascinating to look at.
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

  13. Sue, your photos are way cool this week. 😀

  14. Sue what a delight to see you! These look incredible and so fascinating.

  15. I hope you had a good break Sue!

  16. What a labour intensive way to grow the vines. They must be dedicated. Good to see you back Sue. Good take on the theme.

  18. I was missing a while myself but it’s lovely to ‘see’ you again, Sue! I have good memories of those vineyards in Lanzarote, too. 🙂
