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!!
