Another pretty orchid that I got from my mother's collection. Orchid blooms have a way of sneaking up on you. One day I walked outside and could see something white out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look and received a pleasant surprise.
This interesting looking tomato is called Paul Roberson. It is an heirloom variety that I planted for the first time. The plant grew well and then one day it started to decline very quickly. Fortunately, it lived long enough for two tomatoes to ripen. Yes, the tomato in the second picture is fully ripe. It has a hearty tomato flavor and was delicious, but I must say that if I served it to company they would have thought the tomato was rotten. The inside of it was a mixture of green, dark red and yellow. It did not look appetizing at all. I wish I knew what happened to the plant to cause it to die so quickly.
