Summer photo #1


Raindrops, originally uploaded by quiltingmick / michelle.

It's the last day of Summer Spring, and we've been treated to cool temperatures and rain showers all afternoon. I took this photo during a sun shower. To me, tomatoes seem to come with the promise of warm weather - even though we've had a lot of warm weather in the last month or so. This week I'm happy for it to stay a little cooler, and for my tomatoes to keep getting their water from the sky.

This summer I've joined in with Jodi to post a photo of summer each Monday. As much as I don't enjoy the extreme heat of our Canberra summer, I do love everything else that comes with it, like swimming, Christmas and sitting under the elm tree. Can't wait.

  3. Your tomatoes are looking good! Is that another two or three I spy in the background? It's funny, you could just about take the same photo in my backyard. It's nice to see the water around, it makes me forget how parched everything's going to look soon.

  5. You forgot the bit about parties at dusk, sipping mint juleps under the magnolia tree...yeah, ok. But I'm damned if I don't manage something like it this summer 'round!

  7. All right I'm confused...yesterday was the last day of spring. Today is the first day of Summer. I know you're in Canberra, so you must have pretty spectacular seasons for yesterday to be the last day of Summer :-P

    Lovely photo, just love tomatoes growing on the vine!

  10. Love the tomato. I have many similar ones in my little urban garden. Can't wait to have my first one. They certainly take their time from fruition to red juiciness. xo m.
