As I Was Saying . . .


A lightning strike Thursday evening took out the tower from which we receive our Internet signal and thus my silence.  Justin came up this evening and brought his portable 'hot spot' so I'm able to post -- regular service should resume in a few days.

I've been busy in the garden --  more planting, a lot of hoeing, tying up the tomatoes . . .

Above is a Black Krim tomato --
 Elizabeth Goodweather has them in her garden but this is a first for me.

And there are always the day lilies . . .

Also, I'd like to direct your attention to her spirits rose, where Katy, the proprietor, has done a lovely watercolor picture of Marigold and her calf.

It's been a lovely weekend, topped off by a rainy morning -- perfect for the garden.

I shall come blog-visiting when our service resumes . . .

Until then . . .

Missed you, though I've been on the road yesterday. SO when I came back to read blogs today, where was Vicki? I need my Vicki "fix". Hope your net is working for you regular again soon!

Back to the "olden days" of no internet! I thought something like that must have happened. Glad to hear from you!

Kath said...

So glad to hear from you again. Thank you for the beautiful photos.

Fascinated by the Black Krims. I'll have to look into them. Hope you don't decide you LIKE being without internet! Jim

Darn, that's a bummer about your service. Hope you are up and running soon.

Until I started blogging, I had NO CLUE how many varieties of tomatoes there are! Good luck with your new black ones.

I'm still using Justin's 'hot spot' and have scheduled posts for tomorrow and Tuesday. Hoping everything's back to normal sooner.

The black tomato is new to me, too. Have you ever tasted one, and is there any noticeable difference between it and the more common varieties?

thank you for the walk in your garden.I must say that compared to you I am very lazy. I have hardly a garden and I have a gardener to weed the beds and to prune the bushes.Your flowers are lovely and the photos are stunning! The black tomato is really new to me, I've never seen this before.

I haven't yet tasted a Black Krim. I've grown Cherokee Purples, another dark tomato, and they are luscious! I'll report on the Krims when I taste one!
