A few pictures ...

 Tomatoes growing on the front porch.
 Look in the central part of the tree in the light red circle.
 Yes, it's a Morning Glory blossom!
You would think the guy with the scooper thingy could have scraped up all those rocks on the far side of the driveway. DH has 180 feet of them to rake up before he takes the lawn mower out there. They also left a big pile of dirt and rocks at the end of the driveway by the garage. Nice. DH not happy. What can I say?

Cold, damp, and drizzly today. We will need heat tonight. I'm about froze!

Have a good day, night, or whatever!

  1. Sharon, you may be the only person I know whose tomatoes have invaded the porch and the morning glories the trees:)

  2. Wow Sharon! Those tomatoes look delicious!
    Not everyone can say they have a Morning Glory blossom in their tree! How cool!!!
    So sorry for your poor hubby. He tried to do a nice thing and give someone work to do and he gets a messy job from the guy! Makes my blood boil
    Keep warm Sharon... I am looking for cooler myself :)

    1. They are so delicious. I imagine I'll have a big letdown when frost comes.
      I saw that blue and was so surprised, I find them growing everywhere, but this was a new one on me!
      Poor DH has car trouble and had to shovel that wet pile of dirt when he came home from work. :-(

  3. I have tp pick my tomatoes before they ripen or they split...apparently I would make a lousy farmer.

    1. Sorry. I don't know why that is happening to your tomatoes, too much water?

  4. Those are some fine looking tomatoes!
    An odd place to find a morning glory flower, perhaps it grew way up high so you'd notice it from a window.
    The asphalt looks pretty good, shame about the rock debris though.

    1. Most of the glories are close to the front porch, this one had to cross the sidewalk and crawl/slither over to the tree and then up. Odd we never saw it until it was all the way.

  5. Tomatos looking good but I think is probably the last of all that. My brother has some great looking Morning Glory's growing outside on near the porch. I love them. I went out yesterday and took pics of them. So pretty.

    1. I give the tomatoes a couple weeks. Boo hoo.
      Glories are so pretty, but they make such a mess.

  6. Morning glories have a way about them, don't they. They like to volunteer in the most unlikely places.

  8. Oh, the tomatoes! My favorite part about August and September when we get the home grown local tomatoes. Love the pic of the morning glory. Sometimes it's the little things in life that bring us joy. All the best to you Sharon.

  9. You don't have far to go to pick tomatoes. My garden doesn't come close enough to the house or I would copy you. I'm glad you enlarged the Glory, it's one of those of flowers that deserted me and my garden.

    1. The tomato plant was growing in the flower bed in front of the porch, and then it grew up, an up, and through the porch railing, and then onto the porch floor just about right in front of the door. :-)

  10. I have to wonder why only one morning glory, seems strange, you'll have to let us know if more arrive. I think the drive looks nice but a bit disappointing that they didn't finish off, but that's workmen for you, I know we never get a perfect job any more.

    1. The vine must have ducked when the lawnmower went through. Hahahaha! ;-)

  11. Morning glories are tenacious little buggers, I love them.

    1. They sure are. It started with one vine that I (stupidly) encouraged to stay 12 years ago.

  12. Bummer about having to clean up those rocks.
    Hope you're having a good one, Sharon.
