Here Comes the Sun(flower)

Check out our sunflowers!! Sweeney's Grandad nurtured these fine specimens from seed. They're on the wane now, though, and birds have harvested a swag of the seeds already. But they've given us, and all the people who walk past the house every day, a blast at just how huge and happy-looking they are. Sweeney's appointed himself Minister of Watering.
In other news, it feels like summer is truly on the way out. A wintery blast, with wind that snapped one of the supports for the shade sail, has hit town. Broke out the raincoats yesterday. Thinking about firing up the slow cooker for something warming for tomorrow night's dinner. It's dark at 6am now. I'm thinking about putting my slippers on.

It's crazy to read that summer is almost over there when we're just getting into Spring. I LOVE sunflowers, I grow them every summer. I've grown them taller than me, but never as tall as the one you posted. Fun!

I was very encouraged to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this special read. I definitely savored every little bit of it and I have bookmarked you to check out new stuff you post.

I have loved walking lately, catching peeks over fences of the sunflowers bobbing around. I might try them next year and see if they survive the howling wind.
I'm thinking about the slow cooker too. But March is TOO EARLY!!

Every year the sunflowers are the biggest joy of the garden. On this side of the globe, we've just started the seeds indoors!
