Sunflower Joy !~!

Taller than we are now...

Shading CAtCAt in her kingdom; all the bugs are hers !~!

Sunburst-like in its beauty.

Multiple heads on some will be so fun when they're all abloom at once.

The brown ones are magnificent in their uniquity.

As the annuals go to seed, St Francis continues to provide water for the animals.

Good-bye, Sweet Burp

As all things must end, these little guys age out and school gets them or, as in this case, they move to other parts of the country. Wyatt and his family leave for Arizona tomorrow... words fail me.

I love you, little guy, and will miss you more than I can tell.

Happy Birthday, Jean !~!

My dear friend has a birthday today. She rocks the movie trivia category on Jeopardy like no one else I have ever played with or against. I have known Jean for a year now and we have seen one another every single day for a couple hours-often the best hours of my day !~!

Happy Birthday, Jean.

Jean Ashton laughs at some ridiculous comment we have made about what we're watching on PBS. This night it was one of the installments of the Ken Burns special mini-series The Roosevelts that had us enjoying each others' company.

The Sunflowers are Nearly My Height

Hard to believe that anything can grow this fast. These sunflowers are gaining height, stem diameter and loads of foliage. A few of them have reached the point where they are setting flowers; the shorter breeds will  likely have blooms before the ten-footers appear.

Photos taken May 6th:

Later in May-21st or so...
Standing next to the row.

Poppies, calendula and weeds are coming up between the big plants.

Lulu Steers Nemo to a Blue Ribbon

I met this young lady when she was a few weeks old.
I have had the distinct privilege of watching her grow
into her own over the last twelve years.

I love you, Lucia, with every fiber of my being.
The rest of your life is an amazing book just waiting to be read !~!
