The vendange (vintage) is the annual wine harvest, when the grapes are picked from the vines. It’s usually done around late September or early October, the exact time depending on meteorological vagaries.
The 2021 vintage is probably going to be a shocker because of the awful weather we’ve had this year. However, this image, from a chateau in the Bordeaux region, harks back to a more promising time.

It’s colour week for Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week and the chosen colour is light or neon green.
Handily, another of the panes of stained glass in the suncatcher that I featured a couple of weeks ago here fits the bill, and is a pleasingly abstract image (which reminds me a little of a slide under a microscope).
