Autumn in the Marlborough Vineyards





Almost the whole Wairau Plains of Marlborough are covered in, from the blue mountains to the golden mountains on the other side Grape vines, in Autumn when the leaves all turn golden or red it is very beautiful. It is especially beautiful when flying in or out of the district. I enjoy the vista as I drive around in the taxi and I take a few photos, but not many because the whole plain is so flat there are few vantage points where you can get a great veiw of them. The grapes have all been harvested now and are being turned slowly in great wine.

Thats My World for this week, do check out all the other wonderful postings from around the world.

Grape vines are so pretty. I love the twisted old wood.

The vineyards clothed in gold are a delight to behold. I've got some shots of autumn in Vic....we drove all the way from SA to soak up the colours.

I always feel Australia is so lucky to have NZ as its garden!

Thanks for showing us around on your beautiful South Island! Picton is a place where I gladly would live, if I could take all my family, friends and neighbours with me. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Lovely fields of vine and the blue mountains at the background, I adore mountains. You always miss what you can't have. But luckily the spring has arrived in Helsinki and I took some pics, too. Greetings!

So beautiful...reminds me of our Napa Valley, which I've only been to twice, but most recently in the fall. It's magical, as I'm certain it is for you, too.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I'm enjoying reading yours.
Cheers!
