Driving through the orchards and vineyards, its hard not to notice that the world of horticulture is going through an awkward phase.
Trees are sprouting new growth, in a not so graceful fashion.
Long tendrils of woody vines are sprouting funky little green nubs.
Even the strawberries are puffing up, yet not yet bearing ripe fruit.
It is just that awkward phase, and we all know they will grow out of it.
