Day 9 - 30/30 Challenge - Tomatoes!

Tomatoes on the Vine
watercolor, 6" x 6", $35

A trip to the grocery store today made me realize how much I miss tomatoes. Real summery tomatoes that smell like sunshine and rich soil, not pale, hard, faux tomatoes that bear more resemblance to apples. Tomato plants that grow into shrubs and create cool green leafy caves. If I was a fairy, I'd live under those leaves and wear a necklace made of basil (that would be growing right next to my front "door") and eat tomato sandwiches everyday. (On white bread, with salt and pepper and mayo - now I want one!)

My summer garden simply cannot happen soon enough!
