volunteers, reflection, remains & whimsy

I wondered around our yard with my camera today. As I didn't plant any veggies this year, I was delighted a month or two ago to see volunteer tomato plants growing from the previous year's fallen tomatoes. What a luscious treat a ripe tomato is eaten fresh from/in the garden!

Here I caught my reflection, along with the clouds, in the water of our pool.

This is the remains of a clematis flower. As beautiful & interesting as the blossom itself, don't you think? Looks like something Tim Burton would dream up.


And what would a garden/home be without some whimsy here & there? This is just one of several smiles we've sprinkled about.

You are so right about the beauty of the clematis, the taste of fresh tomato, and the need for whimsy. To have all in one garden (and a pool) is quite a blessing!
