Late-Summer Gold

I had a hard time knowing what to choose this morning--nature school, gardening or school planning.  But, really, sunflowers.  These aren't quite as big as the Sunflowers of 2013, but that's okay.  They've done really well, despite the dry weather and heat, and I know we'll enjoy them, anyway (as will the birds!).  Insects have been resting up near the blooms.  Forgive me for not knowing why exactly, but it's kind of like they are lounging by a pool.  Maybe they are looking to munch on unsuspecting pollinators.  Oh, well, happier things.  Sunflowers.

We love sunflowers, too. We had a fantastic field of them in Montana. But my favorite variety for our home garden is a reddish one with multiple branches. Once I grew a Mammoth variety taller than our house!! People driving by would stare at it, and our neighbors made comments. :) Enjoy your sunflowers. - Stacey

How neat! These were supposed to be pretty big, but they never made it. I'm hoping to make some significant soil amendments before next year.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
