Organic Glitter

Since I'm growing tomatoes for the first time, I've been obsessed with inspecting the plant daily to make sure I'm not killing it. Today, as I was doing a little pruning, I realized the leaves seemed to be shimmering in the sun. 

As I looked closer, I couldn't get over how beautiful the leaves were.  It looks like someone dusted them with gold glitter.

PS - I know he looks thirsty. It was noon and almost 100 degrees.


  1. I think the gold "dust" is most likely pollen raining down on them.

  2. As I am reading this today (10/14/16), I thought of another reason it might look like glitter. Until I lookws at the date of your post and realized it was after our spray painting party in your yard......
