A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

I really am back - sort of

I know I did say I was back and I am - more or less.  The past few days I've pretty much spent going through 'stuff' that belonged to my Dad and I didn't suppose anyone wanted pictures of that sort of thing.  Today I had to take a picture of this spectacularly-coloured vine (Englemens Ivy, I think...sp?) that is on our fence right outside our back door.  The green you see is actually some sort of very miniature tomatoes that has run amuck along that fence over the summer. The tomatoes are only about the size of blueberries, but the vines make up for it!   If you embiggen the picture hopefully you can see some little green ones hanging in a cluster on the right side of the picture (above the date).

Absolutely beautiful contrast! It would make a cool, off-beat Christmas Card!
I am wondering if the tomatoes are little currant tomatoes? (I think that is what they are called...) A very miniature variety that goes like wildfire.
Hope you're doing as well as possible~~~♥

XXOO~~♥

I'm glad you're back, MA. I missed you. Hope you're feeling okay. I know you'll really miss your dad after 11 years sharing a home.
