The last of summer


I found these little tomatoes in the greenhouse lurking among some nearly dead leaves and spindly stalks. The sun was bright and lit them up making them look like those little Christmas tree lights. The picture is a little sad, as it reflects the end of the growing season and the beginning colder weather. I wish I could capture summer's essence and keep it all year round, taking it out when the snow is falling and the frost whitens the ground.

Perhaps I have captured a little bit of summer right here.

Wow - technicolour oranges! Looks like a good subject for a nice drawing to be done during the winter months when you need an injection of colour!

Just what I was thinking? Aren't they just glowing with colour?
