It's Wednesday!

Hard to believe it is already Wednesday.  We had a holiday on Monday (Simcoe Day) so the week seems to have gotten away from me.  Here is the only flower I made this week.  There were just too many other things to do.

I also made a few white hexies for the background, but I still have about a hundred to do, so I will not bore you with those.

Instead I will bore you with my 'tomato series'.  I will be posting the different tomatoes I am growing this year as the summer goes on.  This one is a large, beefsteak type called 'Brandy Wine" and is an heirloom variety and is a pinkish colour. One slice was enough to cover my entire piece of toast.  I love this kind of tomato - lots of meat with only a few seeds.  They are also very sweet.


And from what I heard on Breakfast Television this morning, it's National Cat Day.  So Mimi, here's to you!

Love the tomatoes. Mimi is cute also. Hope she doesn't make the National Cat Day into a demanding day. HA HA

Nice yellow flower. Mimi is so sweet. I am going to have to go home and spoil my 4. (like I don't already)

Oh I am going to have to take a picture of my flowers too tonight.

If I had to choose one, Brandywine is my favorite tomato variety.

(Sliced on toast with mayo & black pepper - now there is a sandwich!)

In Holland we call these tomatoes 'meat' tomatoes. But they hardly have any taste.
Beautiful summer flower.
