Show and Tell Friday

Show and Tell

Welcome to “Wings of Eagles” as I join in with Kelli's Show and Tell Friday.

Where does the week go! This summer is flying by! Of course, we have spent this week thinking mainly of our dear daughter and Son-in-law and their move. But then...
last night we returned from seeing them for dinner, and we checked out our small tomato patch. Oh, my! Now let me say, it is very exciting for us, because heretofore, we had too much shade to plant a real garden or even plow up a space to plant anything, but this year we decided to plant some tomatoes there by the garage. And Ta-dah!!
