Bushy Tails from Perdeberg – Issue Four

I had an early Christmas present in the form of 20mm of rainfall so I’m storing this up for the not so festive dry spell ahead. I’ve had no choice but to drop even more of my grapes as my berries are very small – and they will need all the strength they can muster […]
