I like grapes this way - the vines start out as small and insignificant yet with years of pruning and training, the fruit will grow up and up and up. A mighty vine that was once small is not so much now. The stucco building and yellow leaves create this wonderful tapestry!

Wonderfully solved challenge. They may be hard to grow or paint, but oh, so rewarding to eat or drink.
Hope you have a great celebration these days!
