In the Garden

We tried a sunflower house a couple of years ago and it didn't do to well....but last year we had a few big heads and we saved the seeds. So we tried again. So far it is doing really well, I am not sure if they will get to the height required to tie to tops into a roof....but it is a house already. With marigolds, cosmos, zinnias and morning glories growing all around. It even has inhabitants:

I am very thankful for the the rains we have been getting this year- I don't think it has rained like this in nearly 5 years, and everything is green to show for it. And it is even better that it is raining summer style...popping up in the afternoon, pour for a 10-30 minutes and then the sun is back.

From our garden this afternoon,

  1. Everything looks great! Love the idea of a sunflower house :)

  2. Your garden is super. I love the sunflower house idea. Sunflowers don't get that big in our dirt though.

  3. Wow... everything looks amazing Sadie! I love how the chicks look with their mama. What a sweet little family they make. :)
