Hidden Treasures

As I recently confessed to my unprofessional art practices (see blog below) you wont be over surprised to find my gardening ethic seems to be following a similar path!
Whilst in the garden this morning, Toro, my ever faithful friend and I discovered 3 burgeoning tomato plants still full of fruit and 5 pumpkins!!!

How can I have missed them ???

As we've been having a few light frosts lately and today is the first day of Winter here (note blue skies !?) I felt like they were wonderful hidden treasures to stumble upon.
The true surprise being finding them at all because really, my vegie garden isn't that big at all!

To improve my gardener extraordinaire image (ok, slight exaggeration)
I took a photo of my lavender cuttings, which thankfully seem to be thriving on my neglect.

Gotta love lavender!
I hope you are having a lovely day of discoveries.

The pumpkins are fabulous and the tomatoes are making my mouth water! Here in Missouri, USA my tomato plants are just seedlings as it is springtime. I can't wait for the bounty! Your art is wonderful. I love the kitties and the girl with the large blue bird!
