Flowers are in bloom at Bill's TN Paradise this time of year. This week it's lilies and magnolia blossoms.

I really like these red day lilies (thanks Shirley), they kind of go with the red trim on my log house.

The tomatoes are thriving with the recent rain and the new cherry trees look healthy. I have small green tomatoes on the vine already and hope to be harvesting in a few weeks.

When the tomatoes start coming in, I eat 'em all the time. With a dressing made with fresh herbs crushed and ground with garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and sea salt. A mortar and pestle is essential. Sometimes I get a few lbs of home made humus from the Gyro Restaurant and spread it on tomatoes. I could eat it every day.

Summer is great. Bring it on.
