Tom and Me - We've Gotten So Close!!!

In height, that is!

Thought it would be interesting to show how big Tom is, the tomato plant from the windowsill! He is almost 5ft tall!!! (Remember the picture I posted a few days ago?)

Here's a better idea of how big he actually is. I am 5'10"... He's up to my chin!

Remember the passion flower seeds from a few months ago? I was lucky and grew more than 10 plants! Most of them are planted in the backyard. I plopped this one and another one into flower pots so I can bring them inside, this fall. Hoping the ones planted in the ground survive the brutal cold weather this winter but incase they don't, I will have a couple saved inside for next year.

These pictures were taken while doing some weeding, early this morning. Already sweaty, yucky and hot.

Grew 'Em, Painted 'Em, And Then Ate 'Em!

These are the tomatoes that I started growing last spring, on the windowsill!!!

I had started this painting a couple weeks ago but then things got a little crazy. Am very glad to finish it up because I have another still life ready to go and eager to do.

I sincerely hope my monitor didn't handicap me too badly as I uploaded the images from my cell to my computer. Most times the pic doesn't need adjusting and I hoped the same for this one (because anything I do to the contrasts or color on this computer isn't a real representation of what is really seen. Sometimes such adjustments are needed, even if minor).

Thanks for looking. I hope you liked the painting.
