Orange + Green

"One of the most delightful things about a garden
is the anticipation it provides."
~ W.E. Johns

the first tomatoes of the season

My older daughter and husband built this triangular structure and planted an upside-down tomato garden with 12 hybrid varieties. She loves tomatoes, so the watering, measuring, charting and graphing will pay off in tomatoes.

"The gardener's work is never at end;
it begins with the year, and continues to the next:
he prepares the ground, and then he sows it;
after that he plants, and then he gathers the fruits...."
~John Evelyn

Beautiful ideas! I have two tomato plants...but they haven't produced any tomatoes yet (in the UK).

For some reason, I'm really feeling bright orange and a cool pink together. Usually I stray to the blues and greens, but lately I have been about the cirtus/berry colors. It feels like summer to me.

beautiful mandala Tammy!
I love that tomato structure.
lovely photos all :-)
this week i'm feeling drawn to the bright sunshiny yellow of evening primrose just starting to bloom in my garden - I love how the yellow looks against the green leaves and the reddish petal sheath (not sure of the name for it - calyx?)
