Reverence for the Sun

“The Sun, with all the planets revolving around it, and depending on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as though it had nothing else in the Universe to do.”

~ Galileo Galilei (1564-1642).  Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher.

  7. We’ve inherited grape vines in a greenhouse on our new allotment. The fruit is meant to be the same colour as the ones in your picture. Can’t wait.
