Summer Sunflowers

Normally this time of year, I would be commenting on how the summer heat has been taking its toll on the garden.  Not this year, though.  The gardens have responded to these cooler than normal July temperatures by being one explosion of color after another.  Right now it’s the sunflower’s turn to show off.

While we were enjoying the beauty of the sunflowers, others were enjoying them in other ways…

Considering how far these were dragged, I assume the squirrels feasted on these two heads.

And the birds have been frequent visitors to this “bird feeder”!

  1. It is so wonderful to see sunflowers blooming…ours are still a couple of weeks behind before they will bloom.

    • I planted a couple of different kinds (plus had some volunteers from the bird feeder) and they seem to have different bloom times. I’ll have quite a long sunflower season!

  2. These are lovely–so cheery.
