Summer, Tomatoes and Lightning Bugs

There are a few things I like about summer.

Fresh flowers in the garden

Lightning bugs


Freshly picked corn



First tomato simply sliced, sprinkled with salt and pepper
7-grain bread slathered with mayonnaise
Joy at the table!

Heirloom cherry tomatoes quartered
Sprinkle with a little salt and let stand for at least an hour
Thick slices of fresh mozzarella on a plate
Top with tomatoes and their juices
Sprinkle with fresh basil.

Yes, that's what I like about summer!

Oliver had fun with an errant lightning bug that got in the house,
finally chasing it out the patio door.


  1. we have all of the above but no lighting bugs.. and that second salad I will try, looks wonderful... I do love a tomato sandwich, we were raised on them. Jake hates all bugs since he has been stung several times by bees.. even a humming mosquito gets him riled up

  2. Fresh fruit is about the only thing I like about summer. Well, maybe the nice evenings where you can sit outside and eat dinner......if it isn't a thousand degrees 😄

  3. Beautiful! And I'm thinking you maybe grew it yourself? I am so glad to see you today! I was just thinking about you, and wondering how you are, and if you have quit posting.

  4. Just saw the first lightening bugs last week! My tomatoes don't even have a tinge of pink on them yet. If it ever stops raining maybe they'll ripen :) Looks delicious, Bonnie!

  5. Looks delicious Bonnie. My tomato plants in containers on the top of the boathouse are still green. Glad to see your blog post!

  6. love these tomatoes Bonnue look delicious :)

  7. Oh yum. That first tomato sandwich makes my mouth literally water!

  8. Not much any better then a fresh tomato out of the garden. Love them....Tomato sandwich with salt and pepper and good ole fattening mayo!

  9. Now you've gone and made me hungry. I'm heading out the door to buy some fresh mozzarella. I love how simple ingredients used
    in the right combination can make a delicious meal.


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
