There is something so jaunty about flowers on the tomato plant! They seem to be all over the place, totally in disarray and yet they are some of the most determined plants I know. Leave one fruit to fall to the ground while you aren’t looking and you can be sure that next year you will find volunteers springing up all over the place, far and wide from where those seeds first settled. Don’t ask me how this happens but I am usually happy to let at least some of them grow for me, as long as they don’t interfere with other garden plans I have made. To me the flowers look like little caps to frame tiny faces. I wonder how many volunteer tomato seeds are lying asleep under their deep bed of snow right now? I can’t wait to see!

  1. These little pixie-cut blossoms are a tease, appearing to dart here and dart there, like the quintessential pixie, TInkerbell. They are tease in other ways too. Making abundant appearances, causing hope to spring large in the breast of the gardener, excitedly anticipating the crop of tomatoes that will surely follow in due course…only to find that some may choose to produce a tomato, but others will not. It’s a cruel tease, or perhaps, to the skilled gardener, more of a challenge. Nevertheless, Ellie, this photo is a tease too, evoking images of that time when the garden will be full of promise of the fruit so many of us pride ourselves in trying to coax from the plants. In due course, the shoots will be planted and we will all be waiting, in high anticipation, for the appearance of these little teases. Thank you, Ellie.

    1. And if it’s anything that we all love, it’s anticipation brought on by teases such as this. Thanks Janet, we all look forward to the new garden promise that awaits!
