Still looking good!

It still looks so beautiful, Vicki. Your tomatoes have been amazing, but there's next summer to look forward to and make plans for and, besides, your world is also incredibly beautiful through the wintry months, so that's also something to look forward too :)

What a beautiful way of dwindling down! Your tomatoes look perfect. I had two tomatoes sofar they were green and fell of the plant, so I put them on a saucer and left them on the window sill. After two days they were red.

Summer's colour slowly yielding to another season.

The end of a season but still so very beautiful. We are at the start of the tomato season, we have wee tomato plants potted up ready to planted in the ground in a few weeks time.

Hello Vicki

Hard to believe you still have tomatoes! Sad to see summer go, but I look forward to fall and all the pretty colors.

Best
Tracy :)

I am amazed at your tomato crop this year Vicki. You had the makings of a grand farm stand. Fall is definitely in the air.

It's such a relief to have the heat finally beginning to ease off! Three cheers for autumn!!!

That's probably the last of my tomatoes -- I picked them Sunday. I'll miss them but, f we had tomatoes that good all year round, they wouldn't be nearly so appreciated.

We turned the sheep into our tomatoes weeks ago. Some years are good and some are not. This was an are not year for us. Loved seeing the different varieties you grew this summer. Aren't these cooler days just wonderful?!?

Of all the things I will miss about summer, tomatoes are at the top. They have been wonderful this year and I hate to see them go.

Star said...

but you still have lots of colour left in your garden don't you. After looking at your pictures of the morning glory and those of Jo at aBritinTn, I bought a packet of seeds for myself. I want to have a go at growing them over here in England and see what success I get. Isn't it wonderful how we bloggers inspire each other!

This time of the year-I'm glad they are dwindling down. I start wanting my kitchen table back-where's its been covered with tomatoes and peppers all summer : )

Friko said...

I know, here too; it's so sad.

Merisi said...

Oh, I love the light and mildness in the air, the glimpse of the sundial. Indian Summer awaits.

Vicki Lane said...

Good for you, Rick! I was wondering if anyone noticed my reference to September Song. It's been playing in my head for the past few days.

If you find a place the morning glories like, Star, they will be with you year after year.

I've saved seeds if anyone would like some -- not beyond the USA though. Most countries don't allow casual import of seeds.

What an absolutely gorgeous rose!!!!!! Cathy

Such beautiful photos.
I finally have a tomato turning red. Thanks to the raccoons, a bad tomato season. I may have to sleep outside near the tomato plant tonight so I get the tomato and not the masked bandits.
