Friday Randoms



I grew some Black Jewel Nasturtiums this summer and, as you can see, only the leaves are a bit darker.  The flowers are as brightly colored as ever.  


These photos show a stunning degree of symmetry.  


It is possible that I overheard two teenage girls stating that a manatee was like an overgrown seahorse...but, whatever.  Here are a set of twins that might make you smile.  


Seriously, it is tomato time here in the south.  Mine are not so great after all the rain we had, but if you have some ready to eat, here is a recipe just for you.  


I heard this song three times on the radio, just this week.  I think it deserves a mention today.

  2. I love nasturtiums in the garden, but when trying to eat one on a salad have to choke it down. My brain just can't wrap itself around eating flowers.

  3. Have you ever eaten Nasturtiums? I am told they can be added to salads, etc. I never have, but did grow them at one time. The manatee and her babies are cute for sure. Hope you have a happy Friday. That degree of symmetry is amazing. Love grilled cheese, but not sure of that one.

  12. That song deserves a mention any time. Wonderful photos in that link. My tomatoes are not near ready...am afraid they won't be any good because of the rain. I like those darker leaves...and the twins are adorable!

  15. One of the reward questions on Bing! Rewards this week had something to do with manatees and seahorses. I can't remember the question but it makes sense to me that you might have overheard teenagers talking about it, simply for that reason.
