Old Photo - Australia

It’s been a while since I posted something about an old photo. My selected one this time is this rose bush at the end of a grape vine. In former times, many vineyards planted roses at the end of the grape vine as an indicator of disease; nowadays of course they check the vines themselves and soil conditions etc. As we toured the valley many vineyards had these beautiful roses and we were quite taken with them.

The picture was taken during our trip to the Barossa Valley in Australia where many of the famous Australian wine brands originate (Jacobs Creek, Penfolds etc).

I also show some of our other Australian shots below!!
