Yesterday late afternoon as we pulled into our circle it looked as though we had arrived at ‘Sunflower Station’.
We had only been gone a week, but the Sunflowers had all but buried our home. It certainly was a sunny delight, but I knew that a few of them had to go.
They are ones that reseeded from last year. None of the heads are large this year, but I didn’t have the heart to pull them out. But this morning I was out there trimmers in hand cutting back like a mad woman on a mission!
They were so pretty that I couldn’t just toss them in the garbage. I grabbed my white wicker funeral basket and began to fill er up!
Some have yellow centers. . .
I love their happy smiling face!
They prompted me to make a few subtle changes on the porch.
It’s been hot lately and my fun thermos collection reminds us that it’s still summer and to stay hydrated. I always think of that commercial, “Stay thirsty my friends”.
Don’t you love yellow and red together?
The grey thermos with the diamonds was a new find in Fairfield, CA
I remembered that a while ago I had picked up this sunflower chair pad on clearance at our local grocers. Needs something a little more. I’m sure it will get a bit of tweaking.
Doesn’t look quite like ‘Sunflower Station’ anymore, (although I left some); but I have these beauties to enjoy…at least for a few days.
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
