More Garden Blossoms

Hillbilly tomato blossoms

These Hillbilly Potato-Leaf Tomatoes produce larger-than-average blossoms. They made me pay a little more attention than usual. Up close, they are quite attractive blossoms.

Tomato ovaries are also quite pretty when they start to swell. This is an Amish Paste Tomato, with the dried-up pistil still attatched.

I'm very fond of Nighshade Family flowers. Before long my eggplants and peppers will be flowering and I'll have my camera ready!

Nice shots, Rebecca!
