Views From Home

 Just a few scenes from home over the past few days.

The yellow rose bush has been stunning this year. I've been photographing it like crazy.  So, I thought it might be time to share a pic here.

Our first homegrown tomato of the season. When Roger sliced it, it looked like a heart to us. Then, I took another look and thought it also looked a bit like a red tomato barn owl. 


One morning the view looking east a little past sunrise. A bit of rays in the low fog in the trees.

Tuesday morning's smoky view at sunrise. We're always glad when there's no fog or clouds, even if it's an orange sky of haziness. 

I'm grateful for these views from home for post #55. Yes!

  2. Those tomatoes look delicious. My 3 outdoor plants were cropping well until the blight rapidly took over and I had to throw them all out! Grey skies here today in SE England, but at least it isn't raining like it did most of yesterday!

    1. Frances-- Our tomatoes are finally ripe enough for eating. We're so happy about that. It's our favorite gift of the garden. Hope your weather clears soon there.
