what's in bloom

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.

Daisies come up here and there. I didn't plant these. They are in the neighbor's yard (which is actually a vacant house), and I get to enjoy the daisies from my patio.

The deer come through almost daily. I was sitting out on the patio when she came into the neighbor's yard. I was trying to focus my camera and she heard the zoom lens. I took the shot before she wandered off. The lens focused on the bushes rather than the deer, but I love that look of hers.

This year I thought I'd try my hand at growing cherry tomatoes. As we are renting, it's a potted garden. I planted these from seeds and they have been growing beautifully.

The deer lopped off the first bloom of flowers. I need to buy some chicken wire to keep these recent blooms going.

Your potted tomatoes look very promising! And I like the surprised look on the deers face...Enjoy your garden and the summer!

Always so happy to read a note from you..I know, I am lousy at visiting.
I refuse to let my blog is something that is a part of me.
Your tomatoes are doing good..Our oldest daughter planted bucket tomatoes/corn/cukes for me..because I am not a gardener. George was the gardener, I did the freezing/ was the best of two worlds. Anyway, I am trying my best to keep these plants alive..since my nickname was.."black thumb" far I am doing good..
Thank you for visiting may not always hear from me, but you are always in my thoughts..
