Our weather is currently an infinite desert of showers, heavy skies, where the colours varies from light mousegrey into deep thunderblack. Completely enchanted we put our heads out, should a ray of sun after all loose its way and find us.
Still many of these rainy days somehow manage to finish with a blue sky, white, fluffy clouds, real sun and caps and bare legs. Combined with rather mild nights, it seems to give the grapes enough warmth. Since they actually grow so much, that they begin to swell.
So even the possible first day of the grapeharvest so far has moved a few weeks further into the autumn than first expected - at the moment around September 1st - it can still change, if a heatwave should after all decide to pass by.
