Wild Grape - series of pics

greenman28 NorCal 7b/8aDecember 9, 2008

Hey, folks, I decided to post these pics in a new Thread, rather than bog the "wild grape" Thread down. Anyhow, I have a few distance shots for comparison of summer and fall foliage. And, as promised, I took a few shots of the grape trunks themselves. I wish the pics were better, but you can get an idea of the size...

Down the road:

Summer green:

Across the canal:

Now, the respective Autumn yellows:


An assortment of yellows:



And, finally, the grape vines!



Thick vines - this particular wild grape is growing up a Big leaf maple:


That's all for now!

For reference, the Thread that inspired these shots:

Wow!
Where in Northern California is this?
I have some grapes kinda growing wild. I think I better put a stop to them before they get out of control.

Yeah, and this is only a taste of all that's out here. Lots and lots of old, thick-trunked, tree-toppling grape vines.

This is right around the Bear River Campgrounds, just below Colfax, CA.

In my younger years when I was a stay at home mom. I would walk the back roads and pick the wild grapes to make jelly. The black berries and dew berries were also plentifull there also.
This was on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
And yes they will take over and kill the trees's.

Killing trees then provides an open area for a different type of flora. Then the cycle repeats.
