Cordially Yours


This is the last cherry tomato from my garden - I picked it and a couple dozen more 2 weeks ago before a series of frosts. It wasn't ripe yet, but I expect it to be one last burst of sunshine in my mouth in the middle of winter. Picking green tomatoes before a frost is a desperate attempt to extend summer as long as I can. We Texans complain about the heat - and many of us leave during the summer - but I wouldn't have it any other way. My Southerner's thin blood just doesn't do well in frost and snow! It's cold here today, so I am content to stay indoors, watch the builders repair the sewer line they broke while drilling the piers for the studio, and practice painting still lifes.

Thanks, Barb. First time to do glass like this - good lighting helps and it took me an hour to set it up!
