Picture taken on February 27th
I wasn’t able to choose my favourite picture of my one-hour walk, on October 24th.
Grapes harvest had taken place nearly one month before, but some small bunches of grapes were still left on the vineyard. Large flocks of starlings were flying around like noisy and fast clouds. And of course, the forests and the vineyards wore their autumn clothes…
Grape harvest should start in about two weeks in the Champagne region, where this picture was taken on August 28th.

Now is the season to prune the vineyard. Cut branches are burnt in such old barrels; when you walk in the vineyards, you can see a few people wearing big coats working and smoke rising from the barrels.
