Mosaic Monday


I have a small mosaic today. It's been really hot and humid and we aren't venturing too far from home. I went out into Musashi's Garden (our back yard) and took some shots of what is blooming.


Mosaic of Musashi's Garden



Zinnia, Dianthus and the tomatoes are from our balcony garden. I decided I should take a shot of them before we eat them all up. With the temperature rising, it will soon be too hot for any more tomatoes to *set*. I have another dozen or so on the two plants to pick. There is nothing like a home grown tomato -- so sweet and tasty.

Have a wonderful week!

Joy to You!

What gorgeous colours! And how nice to have tomatoes already. This weekend we had to cover our tomato plant to protect it from spring snow.

Gorgeous! Your tomatoss look amazing. Our plant is thriving but no tomatoes yet. I can't wait til they're looking like yours.

Wonderful photos and beautiful flowers. The tomatoes look delicious!

Put that tomato on a biscuit and oh my, what could be better?

LDH said...

Great mosaic... reminds me of Sesame Street's 'one of these things doesn't belong'. Three pretty flowers and a delicious looking tomato. :)

Such vivid colours in your mosaic. I wish I could help you eat the tomatoes.

All those different variations on red! The tomatoes look luscious. I miss homegrown!

I agree there is nothing like a tomatoe still warm from the plant to sink your teeth into, yum! I hope you have a wonderful week and take care.

Those tomatoes look delicious! Love it

Meri said...

Your tomatoes are beautiful, so perfectly ripe. I can just imagine them with a little fresh mozzarella and some cracked pepper and maybe a chiffonade of basil.

Rajesh said...

Fabulous mosaic. The three different flowers are beautiful.

Artoholic said...

What a gorgeous palette of colours!

Our tomatoes finished a long time ago, although we have 2 recalcitrant passionfruit hanging on.

Garden tomatoes with fresh basil leaves and slivers of baby mozzarella sprinkled with black chunky pepper - yum!

dianthus is one of my most favorite flowers. There is a maroon shade that I absolutely love. I had a whole bed of them once - but then we moved to another state and couldn't take them with me! They were the perennial kind - and I have not been able to find them since!

Love the top left flower too!

Hi Snap,

You are so right - hard to beat a homegrown tomato - sweet as candy! Love your zinnias too, they always say "summer" to me!

Sharon said...

Wowzie such bright colors and tomatos.... Still raining here... watch out I may be knocking at your door. You will recognize me, I am the one dressed in winter clothes holding a umbrella. Happy Memorial Day friend!

Vee said...

Oh my eye went straight to the tomatoes! I'm sure that they are delicious as they look, too.

Ebie said...

Homegrown tomatoes are sweet and ripe and I love them! My first time to see dianthus, or maybe I have seen them but did not recognize.

RYC about Barb, she is so fun and very fit (healthy) and I got to hug LBR!

Gardening in a Sandbox said...

Lovely flowers and oh I can almost taste the deliciousness of those tomatoes. Valerie

Pretty Things said...

Mmmm, fresh tomatoes!

Janice said...

Such a 'hot' little mosaic, glorious colours.

Olga said...

Beautiful mosaic! And those tomatoes look so good.

EG Wow said...

This may be small but it's very pretty!

Hot and humid is what it's like here too. Way too early for Ontario, I think. (Your probably thinking the same thing about your area, right?)

Carol said...

Beautiful pictures in your mosaic! I love zinnias & plant them every summer. Have a sweet week!

colorchic said...

You must not live in the NW were we worry that the rain will wash away the just planted seeds! Only slightly jealous of your warm weather!
PS Lovely Post!

Birdwoman said...

Wow, those reds really pop! We had our first home-grown tomatoes just a few days ago so I can certainly second your sentiments on those. Nothing like 'em!

Mary said...

Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing. :)
