More magnolias and other firsts: Ripe tomato and the rare two-toned blue clover

May is busting out all over!
First ripe tomato!
New sub-species spotted!

The tree is sporting more open and opening blooms, with more buds than I recall ever having seen before! Perhaps after 2020, it is a good sign! The second tomato is ripening–another good sign! And finally, son J introduced a new sub-species of two-toned blue clover. I was quite taken aback when I saw it had sprouted and grown to maturity seemingly overnight! Given I have walked out to discover orange circles, red splotches, and black squares on the driveway or cardboard ‘frames’ strung between flower hangers or trees, I should not have been surprised.

    I’m thoroughly jealous as my tomato plant is not exactly thriving. I have 4 green tomatoes and no blooms, but then again…it came from Costco and not the garden center. Do you think the magnolia is profuse due to the winter storm? It must be beautiful. And, the blue clover…made me smile!

      I have no intelligently formed opinion on any of these items. πŸ™‚
      I have been pleasantly surprised by the tomato production thus far, given my first experience with them. I have no idea (intelligent or otherwise) about the magnolia profusion. And yes, the blue clover made me smile, too. At first I was thinking “can he ever paint anything where it does not affect something else?” And then I thought…well, that is actually kind of pretty now that it is blue–but I doubt the local bees will be interested. πŸ™‚
