Summer Colors..

Today, we have a little respite from the 100 degree days of the past weeks... a breezy 86 degrees. Even in the heat, the flowers persist...thankfully. 

The brilliant blue sky is the perfect backdrop for the lush colors of summer.

The Big Boy tomato vine is living up to its name... It's over 5 feet tall and loaded with shiny green tomatoes. The countdown is on for the first blush of red on those beauties! 

Our attempts to tame and support the limbs have been an effort in futility. Each time we think we have it corralled... Another sprig pushes its way out. The little bell pepper plant in between is being engulfed. So my edible garden has a mind of its own... If you don't see me here or on Instagram, you might surmise that the monster tomato vine in South Georgia has swallowed our little piece of paradise! Stay cool and out for those killer tomatoes!
