Happy Monday!
I had a busy weekend and was able to check quite a few items off my to-do list and I am regaining my footing as far as work goes. I am settling in and loving my new place - very efficient and comfortable. I also spent some time at my local garden center as I have decided to take another stab at growing tomatoes and am reading up on successful cultivation of heirloom varieties. Call me crazy, but the scent of tomato leaves is wonderful. If you have any tips, please feel free to share. I hope that you had a nice weekend, too!

"St. Honore" is the latest print on stretched canvas from my dessert series. It's from an original painting of a Parisian delicacy. It's available here.

To-Do lists are a must no matter the task. They give us Grace under Fire and that includes clients.

Oh yum, this looks heavenly! Just planted tomatoes here too for the first time! Glad to hear that you are settling in so nicely!

I also spent time this weekend planting tomatoes and basil. I adore the aroma of tomato plants as well. Sometimes you will even find me sniffing the clusters on the vine at the store. Those hydroponic big boys just don't have it but on the vine...delightful! Happy week in your new place!

Tomatoes are my favorite to grow. I do far better with veggies than with flowers. My best tip is that for a garden, don't plant tomatoes where you used to plant peppers. Doesn't work out. At some point I knew why. Oh, also, marigolds near tomatoes are good. Again, not sure why. But I do like the pop of yellow next to the red tomatoes. Suitable for container gardens, too :)
