I didn't get outside as early as I wanted to yesterday so I didn't finish picking up all the branches or take down the sunflowers. Today though is another beautiful sunny cool day so after my morning walk I stayed outside to finish.
All the branches are picked up and I pulled up some of the dead flowers. I left the cone flowers up yet because the birds like the seeds, especially the gold finches. Then I cut down the sunflowers and spread the heads of them around the yard for the birds to pick at the seeds.
This first picture of the sunflowers is what they looked like after the heavy rain we had.
Mary's grandson) because he loves sunflowers and liked my giant ones that "reach all the way to the clouds."
I will leave these sit out for a day or two and then send them along to James.
This morning I put all the ingredients into my crock pot to make a new recipe called Mexican Meatloaf.
I have a couple of chores to do around the house (dishes and ironing) and then I'm going to go sit out on the front porch. Maybe I'll read or knit - haven't decided yet. Then when Kenny comes home from work, I think some nice cold watermelon for a snack would be just perfect.
Hope your having a happy Thursday!
