you only have to open this blog to know that . . .
I L O V E Sunflowers!!!
Here On Crooked Creek ~
"Mr. Ed" grows Sunflowers every year just for me. . .
and to feed the birds! ! !
Lovely, petite, Lemon Ice variety ~
Vivid, Russian Red variety ~
and, traditional, Giant Yellow variety! ! !
Each bud brings about an air of anticipation!
when the volunteer seeds begin to sprout ~
planted not by "Mr. Ed" ~
but rather by the birds that eat from our feeders
On Crooked Creek!
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. . .
