'A' budburst is in the spring when shoots begin to pop out of the Cane,nothing to do with flowering verb........Inflorescence is a groupe of flowers as opposed to single flowers stage maybe noun......Set is after shatter'most blooms set some shatter "fall off"..And Veraison of course is the green berries in the colored berries bunch thing.A comes before b then c then d.There are no answers depicting actions or parts of the flower proper.This being said I change only to 'E'.............Upper

I'ld have to guess, but I would choose A.
I've always considered a bud, part of the leafing and branching process. Not really part of the blooming process.
But then, what do I know about grapes other than
I like the wine they make!! :h

Even though I've been harvesting off of a HWC(or TWC if you prefer)vineyard all day long today.I'm going with "A" since I carefully read the answers this time.
