Were I a tomato I would be happy to read that delightful description.
Lovely Magpie, I love the pregnancy imagery.
Delicious, darling!Hope you are having a fantastic summer so far, Helen!xoxox,CC
Very nice. It seems I am in the minority of those who do not appreciate the fresh tomato. I do, however, enjoy all other tomato products!
What's with us Helen wanting to devour??!?!?! Very nice imagery loved the cords...How I wish I had a good tomato to devour right now!
I have no ripe tomatoes yet, but I so enjoyed devouring your description of them. Cheers!
just checked my garden...no ripe red globes yet....I love the pregnancy imagery-spot on! Thanks for the lucious magpie!
I love this metaphor -- so vivid!
nice magpie. like mine fat and pregnant on a slice of bread with mayo...great metaphor as well.
Terrific imagery -

I am going to have a lovely tomato and thinly sliced cucumber sandwich.Just love the 'pregnant' tomatoes...
Wonderfully descriptive, Helen. I loved it.
Love the link to motherhood. Hungry for tomatoes! Currently, mine are green and the size of oversized grapes.
This is so gorgeous..so full of life..thank you!!!
Thank you for coming over to mine.This is sweet, like a fresh tomato.
'... life giving cords.' Continuing the pregnancy metaphor! Good one.
Great relationship between the tomato and pregnancy was exctremely clever. Great MagpieChristine
I love the smell of the 'life-giving cords'. Great Magpie.
great Magpie Helen!
I love the metal image you create. Great Magpie.
Great metaphor Helen!And I'm all about eating straight from the garden - a little bit of heaven.
as always...majestic simplicity! :)
Wonderful. I always likened late summer to a woman ready to give birth.
wow,what a twist,perfect tale!
Brilliant! I never would have come up with the image of pregnancy and umbilical cords, but it totally works and I love it!
Helen,No matter what else I grow in my garden it's the tomato that gives it life! ;)rel
Lovely imagery Helen. Beautiful thought of growth and life.
Bitsy and bouncy. I enjoyed that..!
