We Have Ripe Tomatoes!!

I used to think the red cherry tomato was the sweetest in the world; that is until I tasted the grape tomato...
but that was then and this is now.

My new favorite---
the sungold cherry tomato and I have a feeling it will stay my fav for a long, long time!

Now I knew it was sweet, for my friend sang its glory;
well not literally 'sang', but she did convince me that it was worth buying one!

And maybe it has something to do it with being homegrown...
but YUMMY seems way too indequate a word to describe this morsel of orange, juicy sweetness.
Think candy but SO much better.

Can hardly wait till more ripen:)

Of Birds & Bugs

A beautiful day here in the NW with clear skies and warm, but not too hot, temperatures. Earlier I watered some of the garden, held my baby granddaughter while her mom took care of some things and I'm now inside listening to some very relaxing and, at the same time, uplifting Christian music while I type on a laptop keyboard and scan through recent photos of our garden. Here are a few of them to share with you.

Cilantro & bee.
Yes, with the lovely warmer weather our cilantro has bolted and is on its way to being coriander. Yum, coriander--good for Nordic food!
Robin in the pine.
We have had somewhere between 2-3 bird nests that I know about (probably more) this summer. Often in the day I hear them making melodies.
Did you know that when a bird has a nest and sees a possible threat to their young, that they will try to lure you elsewhere to protect the young in the nest?
One of my favorite insects--the ladybug. Did you hear about the ladybug invasion in one yard in Colorado? Amazing! It looked like a carpet of red on a tree and part of the house. It was beautiful and yet a bit eerie too.
All I can find in our garden is one ladybug on the raspberry but I feel lucky and blessed to have it and I am sure there are more doing the task that God ordained for them to do.
And that is 'the end'.
Wishing you a blessed day!
Blessings always,
as above.
