You may remember back in March I planted a whole slew of seeds, tomatoes, wildflowers, and various flowers (along with some cactus that have been demolished by dogs and baby). I have watered, tended and talked to my little green babies for months and now I am beginning to reap some benefits.
First I discovered the tomatoes plants were beginning to bloom. Yay, we might have tomatoes after all.
Since I planted some wildflower mixes I don’t know what all of the flowers are but I’m liking them so far. I think I have actually seen some of these in the wild. Let’s look a little closer.
I just love the fuzzies on the tomato plants.
Moss Rose is a favorite of mine and I really think it’s because my mom always had a huge pan full of them. So far I only have yellow ones, but yellow is my mom’s favorite color.
They are so delicate and frilly. The blooms are not much bigger than a quarter. So it’s really neat to see inside them like this.
Dunno what it is. But it’s pretty, no?
This is the moss rose again, but I really like it because you can see the sheen in the petals.
For quite a while before this bloom opened I feared the buds had died on the stalk. They looked kinda brown and dried up, then the next day one popped open, one more the next day, and another the next.
Our first tiny little tomato! We now have 10-15. Won’t be long now.
