Sunflower

This is one of the surviving sunflowers in my yard.  One got knocked down by an unknown assailant.  If you look closely at the first picture, you can see that sunflowers are like zinnias, they have mini flowers on the main flower.  Isn't nature amazing?  The seeds are beginning to develop also.  The goldfinch and chickadees will find those soon!  Most of my pictures from the pageant and fair are on disposable cameras and I will get them developed soon.  There really isn't too much to report on.  I went out and visited my Dad today.  I mowed his lawn today on the rider.  It was fun!  He said I can come out and have fun anytime I want!  Did some geocaching over the weekend too.  I found 6 all together. 

I had some good news on the work front!  One of my old supervisors is coming back to work at Wesley.  It will be good to see her again.  I hope everyone has a nice week.  Linda

I love Sun Flowers, and just think when God created nature, it was His gift to us, even the grass you had so much fun mowing. gg/Jackie

Wow!  The flower is amazing and huge.  Ours are so tiny... for awhile didn't think they'd even make it.  I hope they end up like this.

Your sunflowers are beautiful. The ones that grow wild here are small and are not the kind people grow for bird seed. Paula

I love sunflowers. Next year I will plant some for my grandson to see. He's never seen a sunflower before and I want to grow a huge one for him.
Take care, Chrissie
