As I was washing windows this morning, I couldn't help but notice the beautiful color outside, even though it was a gray day and rain in the forecast. The leaves were so bright and colorful.

And speaking of bright color, I brought some green tomatoes in a few weeks ago and put them in this basket. I was hoping they would ripen, but I wasn't sure. Well, look at them now. Nice ripe juicy red and yellow tomatoes ready to eat. I've got more green ones hanging on the vine which I'll bring in later ~ who knows, I may be eating fresh tomatoes into December!

Wow, you have a beautiful view from your sparkling clean windows!

I can't believe you still have so many tomatoes...makes me want to bite into one!

The colors this autumn are dazzling, and you have your own private show. I'm glad you are sharing with us.

Maybe I'll stop by for a tomato sandwich. ;-)

Those are lucious looking tomatoes! I managed to get a few more but I finally gave up on the ones that didn't turn red and fried them.

Isn't it nice to be able to enjoy those autumn leaves a few more weeks?

Hugs, Pat

WOW... great view... great window washing... are you for hire? LOL Unfortunately... even if my windows were clean... I wouldn't have that view... leaves here are still green... although I think I see a hint of a different shade... hmmmm

Those colors do look gorgeous outside your window. Tomatoes my favorite. I love them on sandwiches for lunch too.

Lucky you to still have tomatoes! We had a couple of freezes and mine were history! I love the fall colors out your window...

I don't think there is anything more eye catching and warming than yellow leaves on a gray day.
