The light was beautiful in the mornings this summer & I got some really gorgeous shots. Some I have framed & hung in the house. I love em! It makes me feel better to see the pics in the dead of winter. I can almost smell the blossoms!
This is the Helianthus. This is the plant’s first bloom of the year. It grows to a height of 8′ and spreads rapidly. I will have to cut it back a bit in 2012 or it will take over the garden.
Here are a few of the Black Krim tomato blossoms. They were very nice & big. Hubby’s favourite tomato too! I love the close-ups with hubby’s camera (:
Caribe Potato flowers. They never set seed – but that’s ok. They made great bright purple tubers & the flowers were actually spectacular! If they always had such large blooms I would plant a few in my flower beds. Caribe is SO good for mashed potatoes. Very light & fluffy. Mmmmm…. mashed potatoes!
I overwintered some Giant Musselburgh Leeks to save seed from. Here are the wee seed heads! I love Allium. They are beautiful when they bolt & send up the seed head (:
