It’s the little things that sometimes grab your attention when you’re not really looking. This morning as I enjoyed a coffee on a mostly sunny balcony, little things that pleased me were all around. Such as this teeny little chard plant that is trying so hard to grow, not knowing that Jack Frost will probably soon give a nasty shock.
And this pea-sized tomato, a Better Boy that just won’t quit.
And there are dozens of small blooms, all determined to have their time in the sun. A blue Calibrachoa…
A red Calibrachoa, just opening its star shaped bud…
This spent bloom of a blue verbena looks so peaceful, floating on a bit of rain water.
And finally, a bloom on my peach verbena basket. It seems determined to thrive, despite the shrivelling leaves around it. Might there be a message there?
So, just when you think things are finished for this garden season, take a look around and you might be surprised at all the little things that are still stubbornly determined to prosper.
