Black Monukka by Linda Starr
I often thought grapes were overdone. It seemed I saw them everywhere. There were paintings, illustrations, vines in restaurants, and those acrylic grapes. Well, you're probably familiar with what I'm talking about.
I know what you're thinking, not this time. I didn't make a bunch of grapes in clay. Hey, they're overdone. You'll just have to be satisfied with the photo I took. The various shades of purple are wonderful and they contrast so nicely against the green of the leaves. I just love this bunch of grapes and they taste good too.
A short walk in the garden told me why grapes are utilized so much, though. Isn't a bunch of grapes more than just a bunch of grapes? Is it just me, or isn't a bunch of grapes on the vine like a sonata, a Joseph Decker, a Da Heem, a Monet, a van Gogh even? They are beauty personified.
Click on the photo above to savor the subdued shades of lavender and purple in these Black Monukka, seedless table grapes, growing in my garden. Oh, and I take it all back, how could grapes be overdone.
