August 12 - Tomatoes

Ah, the tomatoes of summer!  Are there any other fragrances so connecting us to the earth than the sun-warmed scents of a freshly picked, ripe tomato?  Here are three of them, garden fresh, and awaiting addition to the salad of the day.  I ate one of them earlier, right out of my hand, and the flavor is incomparable to anything bought in the store, no matter what time of year.
SOLD to Nancy Merrill's collection of Salt Lake City, Utah.
