Three for Thursday: Firsts

First bloom on this cabernet-colored Clematis: I think
it's Niobe. I seem to recall planting that.

First tomatoes:
SunGold cherry tomato

First blooms on the Gulf Coast Penstemon (the yellow streaks, dots and dashes on the leaves are oak pollen[!!!])

And a bonus fourth first: the first pictures from the new Canon G11! I've got a lot of learning to do before I feel comfortable using it. I'm as nervous as I am excited about it. Bear with me during the next few weeks (I hope not months).


Yaay for first tomato of the season!

That Clematis is stunning. And it's so exciting to see you have tomatoes. It just doesn't seem possible already!
