And last year I planted these vivacious beauties...which are attracting ants, and bees, and haven't had their close-ups this year either. But I'm so excited to have something bright and eye-catching at my entry walk.
But here's the real story. In June we were working at a hanger/garage sale fundraiser at the airport and a gentleman stopped by to look. We all got to chatting and he said he had some tomato plants in the back of his truck if we were interested. Sure, says my husband, and he purchased a few plants.
The plants looked a little peaked, but I watered them with the few other flowers and didn't think much about it. However, this last week we've gotten a lot of rain, and here is the result:
So now our visitors have something to talk about right as they enter the walkway! Unruly...massive...spreading everywhere....the plants are growing through the fence and threaten to overtake my cheery little flowers!
When I open the front door in the morning I just have to laugh. Other than the handful of tomatoes we found in July, we haven't seen any more fruit. There are little flowers...so we'll see what happens. Oh yes...if you look carefully to the right of this massive growth, you'll see the Iris trying to come up. Iris. In August. I'm pretty sure nothing will come of it, but with my luck you never know!
