Today I have linked up to Cat Patches Foto Finish and the theme is gardening. Now the two photos I have seen so far are of beautiful flowers. Unfortunately my garden isn't sporting any of those yet. Well we did have some daffodils but those have already gone by. The Iris should showing their flowers but not quite yet. And my window boxes - weeelllllll - I planted seeds this year instead of spending a fortune on nursery flowers. And, get this, I planted peas, beans, swiss chard and nasturtium in the boxes. I am becoming the weird lady on the block - everything in my window boxes is edible. So they won't be pretty but they will be healthy - if I don't kill everything by forgetting to water.
On the south side of the house we planted tomatoes last year. I left some of the fallen ones on the ground to see what would happen. And sure enough we have "wild" tomato plants growing. I don't dare separate them yet-maybe never. SO we will see what these little wonders become - are they cherry tomatoes, or big sandwich tomatoes or (fingers crossed) an heirloom variety?

Enjoy the day - and for those of us State Side please remember our past, our fallen and our active service members this Memorial Day Weekend
