Some very lovely clouds brought some cooler weather and a trip to the community garden plot this morning made me happy.

I noticed this right away:


Wow! It's the Indigo Rose Tomato plant, and that is one black tomato! The three other tomato plants (all different types!) seem to be doing well and have some blossoms. I can't wait for the deluge of tomatoes!!

Plus, I just love taking pictures of tomatoes. The leaves are beautiful in their randomness, and the round green-ness of the growing tomatoes, and then the contrasting colour of the ripe ones. The whole plant just delights me!

My blue daisies are still alive... but today the borage and the nasturtiums stole the show!

borage and nasturtiums

I tried to capture the riot of colour, with the blue borage (starflower!) blossoms and the reds and oranges and yellows of the nasturtiums. And the beautiful green foliage of both.

There was one sadness. Someone had cut down our sunflower. It was just forming blossoms, and I'm sad that I won't get to take pictures of the flowers.

I've loved sunflowers ever since they popped up as volunteers in our first year (2009) of the community garden. I didn't even do anything, and I get these huge beautiful flowers?! ha!

well. The sunflowers I planted are dead, but there are plenty of other garden plots with sunflowers in them. There will be ample opportunity to take pictures...
