The Grape Buds Have Sprouted

My last posting showed you grape vines fastened to the horizontal wires that will support the vines and grapes as they grow. Now the buds on the vines have sprouted and begun their growth toward maturity. Out of each bud comes a complete vine in miniature, with leaves and clusters that are shaped like their final form, but much smaller. The leaves will grow to convert sunlight energy into sugar. The tiny clusters will first grow into blossoms and then into grapes, which will store the sugar. The additional weight of the grapes will turn the clusters down rather than being upright, as seen in this picture. How marvelous is God’s creation.  Can you imagine designing something like a grape vine?
