Brix! The last phenological stage of the season in California!

Brix trip to Davis and San Francisco in early August to catch the earliest season on record in California for winegrapes. BF also pulled and pressed an impressive collection of leaves (which DB is packing up for the oven).

Sadly, we missed cricket night but we may try for it next year.

Saint Hippolyte

Adventures in field work in Quebec … do you know what this plant is? Me neither. Shoot. Time to learn the entire woody angiosperm flora from Massachusetts to the Laurentians!

Finally, a little bit of time in Arboretum ‘field’ site. Next up it’s the road again: St. Hippolyte (backcountry of Quebec), Gothic, Colorado and Davis — one more time!

Not dead

Contrary to what my lack of posting may suggest I am not dead. Just very, very busy. In transit now from Vienna (for PEP725 and EGU meetings, both awesome) but spent the week before in California helping getting a new project on winegrape phenology off the ground. I think it’s hovering — hurrah!
