220414 An Aerial Alveary

220414_LRIt looked as though trying to find an “alveary” (‘A repository, esp. of knowledge or information. Originally as the name of a dictionary encompassing several languages’, OED) was going to be a challenge (although a wine repository would have been very easy indeed, and, had I been at home, the dictionary shelf would have certainly played a role).  However, one of the citations in the OED talks about ‘aerial prospecting’ as being an ‘alveary of information’ and, purely by chance, we stumbled upon this aerial photograph of the area indicating different paths for walking – including the 8 km wine walk.  Today’s recommendations are Landauer’s Grüner Veltliner and Sommer’s Blaufränkisch.

Day #112 of a 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
