The fruits of labor

This is a tiny fraction of the tomatoes. I cannot believe how successful I’ve been this year. I’ve probably gotten about 50 fruits, and I will have another 20 before they are finished with the summer heat. I can’t imagine that I’ll be this lucky again anytime soon.


Just s couple of photos of daylilies this time. All the other plants have bloomed as well this year as in the past, but I will let readers check previous garden blog entries to see the other daylilies I grow. I am particularly fond of the first one, which is a double variety, ‘Common Sense’. I prefer double varieties to single petal varieties.



Lastly, a couple of orchids from the sun room.
