Time for Tomatoes

About this design:

Well, with Temecula being 85 degrees today my mind wanders to prepping for spring planting of tomatoes. Where is winter anyway?

    These are great. BTW, winter is here. 1°F, snow falling all day & all night. These are the perfect antidote to winter chills!

    Really nice bundle of tomatoes :-) . No winter in Finland (the one in Europe, not US…) this year so far, just above freezing, and rain, rain… Nice to see a bit of color…

    Gorgeous earrings; beautifully designed!
    I’m afraid these tomatoes would be frozen in our neck of the woods. Temp. -14F, wind chill between -25 and -40F. Just one of the lucky millions who are experiencing this dreadful winter blast yet again!

    Such a great red, looks wonderful with the antique brass! These make me want to add more red to my wardrobe. Which right now would be warm wooly sweaters! Very cold and snowy in SW Ohio, this will be the perfect weekend to stay in and bead…and be inspired by designs like this!
