Good things to come....

My first successful crop of brown onions is coming along splendidly! Excuse the weeds! I shall have fresh onions for many dishes to come. Valentine tomatoes! What an appropriate name for these beauties! I bought this as a tomato seedling from the Talbot Farmers Market last November. The plant is very fruitful and though still very green,each tomato is growing in size and fullness. Another little find at the market was this Pear cherry tomato.Should make a delightful addition to the salad bowl once ripe and juicy red!

In full bloom.....

My Pom Pom tree in the front courtyard garden recently burst into a perfumed and delicate pink canopy!
This tree never ceases to amaze me. Never fertilised/fed and watered only by rain from the heavens, it yearly bursts into early summer bloom and fills the air with the most delicate and soothing fragrance.

Fortunately, I was able to fully appreciate this tree's beauty before the searing heat of recent days made it almost unbearable to stroll outdoors!
