Grapes in Bloom

by David on June 3, 2010

Please enjoy this gorgeous close up of the grape flower, courtesy of Terry Stigall of

This was taken at our State Lane vineyard.

The larger, yellow-green ovals are the buds, with petals about to open up. The thread-like, white protrusions are the pollen-bearing stamen that emerge when the petals open. Lucky for us, the flowers also contain the ovaries, so they’re self pollinating! The small, lime-green orbs are actual grapes! How amazing!!
