The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Sunflowers ~
              planted not by "Mr. Ed" ~
                             but rather by the birds that eat from our feeders
                                             On Crooked Creek!

 
Singly ~
 

 
in pairs ~




or trilogies ! ! !
 

 


 
 
Regardless of their origin. . .
                                   all become a source to
                                                                        feed the birds !
 


 
 
Awaiting the day of transformation from flower ~ to ~ feed,
a giant Sunflower head dries in the sweltering triple digit
temperatures on a heirloom tractor seat !
 
 
 

 
Feeding the birds ~
        brings "Mr. Ed" and I beautiful Sunflowers ~
                                                          here On Crooked Creek ! ! !
 
 
 
Until next time. . .
