Blooming Friday and Give Away

Over at My Mother's Garden, there is a fantastic give away going on. She has a cute handmade ceramic toad abode up for grabs. Just follow her comment instructions and it could be yours. Hurry, the contest ends Monday Aug 17th at midnight EST. This is open to residents in the USA and Canada.

Now, on to the blooms.


Itty bitty tomato blossoms. This is a Spoon tomato. They are even smaller than grape tomatoes.


More Butterfly Bush and Hydrangea blooms.


I am not usually a big fan of Impatiens but I love these. They are called Fiesta Ole Peppermint.


Fuchsias that are not quite open. I took this later in the evening so they were already shut.


Not technically a blossom, but the fruit. This is a developing egg on our Easter Eggplant.


Queen Anne's Lace in the yard.


Sunflowers across the street at the school garden.




Gourd blossom and developing gourds at the school garden.

The Butterfly bush and the Hydrangea really suit each other. Beautiful pictures.

Lovely pictures. Many vegetable flowers are attractive but we don't often notice them.

The sun going down is gorgeous!
