Essie's Garden, Parma

The University of Idaho, Parma Research & Extension Center in Parma, holds its Annual Fruit Field Day every September. This year, Dr. Essie Fallahi will again host a tour of the table grape vineyards, the new grape canopy experiment, and the apple, peach, and nectarine groves. This painting is from a photograph I took at last year's Field Day while strolling through the Center's vineyards. They were spectacularly beautiful.
