My smile kept growing with each line--what an ode!!! And tomatoes DESERVE that sort of literary treatment, certainly!Thanks for sharing this, Ro, and enjoy a weekend fresh with tomatoes yourself!
Oh gosh Caroline I really am enjoying them, is there anything better than a homegrown tomato? Not this time of year. It is one mouthwatering poem :)
aaahhh...my favorite fruit/veg is tomato...so beautiful! Happy Friday Ro! xx
MMMMM mine too, Mona, I hope you have some this weekend.xo
my sentiments as well...a wonderful ode to the famous, tasty tomato, well said!
Don't you just love them, our favorite tomato sandwiches, with basil, olive oil with or without cheese.........yummy!
omg! i've been out of touch for a while and have been missing all the fun . . . color coding everyone, cd give away, and so many beautiful creations and pics!!!the tomato post reminds me of my dad, who always had toooo many tomatoes at the end of the growing season. every summer when i'd see or talk to him, the first thing he would ask, "do you need tomatoes?" What a happy memory, thanks ro, you are the greatest <3
Hi Rae, We've obviously been thinking about you :)My fist gardens at home were with my dad, we had some good ones, chickens and a rabbit for fertilizer. I love it when we get the overflow tomatoes, time for salsa fresca and marinara!!xoxo
Oh my gosh...LOVE this ode. Almost as much as I love YOU! :-). (Thank you.)Life has been busier than usual this past week, but it has slowed down. Sorry I have been MIA, but I have been following along. Ro, your new pieces are SO wonderful. I am in awe of your talent.Each piece is so special, and the stones are...as always....suberb. Oh, the lucky shoppers that snagged these beauties! Have a wonder-filled weekend, and enjoy those gorgeous tomatoes!xxxooo
Me too, that poem makes my mouth water :)I love you too, now worries about commenting, I certainly know how life can sweep you away in a title wave sometimes, keep your chin up. At the end of this week I had to remind myself to breathe in and out.Oh thank you, I love what I do and whatever I can save from the squirrels. I planted only one tomato plant in the dog yard for protection this summer, luckily it's huge ! A trip to Bountiful!xoxo
Morning Ro,An ode to tomatoes. That's my kind of poet!Reminds me of the summer I was back home and hubs was tending our wee garden. When I asked how my to-mah-toes were doing he said he's never seen to-may-toes grow so big and would send a photo.The (photoshopped) photo he sent was of a single humungo tomato that filled the entire wheelbarrow! =)Have a lovely weekend, Ro. I'm currently cleaning a year's worth of dust from my cave *achoo*xxx
Ha I loved the picture.....tomatoes...tomahtoes......they all are delicious.Oh boy you're on a tear! You might need chocolate. It's going yo be nice when you finish.xoxo
I always need chocolate! =)(And now, a masseuse!)
