August crop

The heady ambience of the greenhouse: warmed wood, the gentle buzz of a trapped fly, the unmistakeable smell of tomato plants.

Gathering tomotoes for today's family lunch. The sun is in and out, the sky dominated by clouds of varying whites and greys - but when it's blue the colour of the trees and the light on the lawns is so uplifting - a world suddenly lit up by sun.


  1. I am so glad you are having a crop. My garden was rained out this spring, 33 inches in one month and has not rained since, and been 100 for days. No garden goodies this year. Thanks for sharing. Richard at My Old Historic House.

  2. Oh I can smell the lushious thing's...we didnt plant a garden this year, we had such a long winter. I am thinking of getting a green house. Thank's for posting such nice tomatoe's .
