Flowers and the promise of food

The rain has finally arrived and I expect to see more plants flowering in the days ahead. For now, I’m really happy to see flowers on the tomato plants — especially as the fruit is so sweet.

Even though it’s a natural part of the plant’s life-cycle, the drying of these flowers reflects rather well the state of our gardens here.

And with only a few (still very welcome) showers forecast for the weekend, it looks as though the current drought isn’t over yet.

There’s definitely some colour-coding of what’s blooming — and fading — in my garden.
