"Summer afternoon - summer afternoon;
to me those have always been
the two most beautiful words in the English language."
~ Henry James
The sun was shining bright (complete with a sun bow) and the temperature was over 90 degrees . . .
my favorite kind of day to work in the yard.
Most of my giant sunflowers did not make it this year. This is the second year in a row . . . I have about had it with snails. I hesitate to use something to kill them because of Charlotte helping me in the garden, but next year I am going to have to do something. I do have my one plant that came up all on it's own in one of my raised garden beds. I will miss not having the giant flowers . . . but I am enjoying this beautiful plant. It measured in Saturday at 13 feet and we have new sunflowers blooming every day. I do believe this plant came up just to bring me joy!
