EMPS #46 -- Seen in Summer
It's Monday again, and time for Carly's Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot. The theme is "Seen in Summer," and she wants to know what says summer to us. I had several items that I couldn't decide between. She also wanted a paragraph about the photo we posted and I will make my paragraph about the following picture.
I bought two tomato plants at Fred Meyer's at once a couple of months ago, one for the Topsy Turvy planter I had seen advertised and ordered (see the following picture) and one for this planter that I had outside and hadn't planted flowers in this year. The tomato plant has taken off and thrived in the planter and has two little tomatoes growing on it already. I am very happy to see them! Now I just hope that the blackberry eradicator won't accidentally spray them when he comes to spray blackberries on Wednesday. I will think positive about that, though!
This photo is of a leafed-out tree that has grown volunteer in my back flower patch. I have the Topsy Turvy planter hanging from it since my house is going to be painted.
These petunias are in a basket that my son J.D. and DIL Kris gave me at my Mother's Day/birthday dinner in May. They have really come along.
To see more EMPS entries, both from last week (in the post) and this week (in the comments), go to the link in the first paragraph above. It's a fun meme if you would like to participate, too!
