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

Coming Full Circle. . .

Coming full circle
              in the life of a Sunflower
                         On Crooked Creek !

Dried Giant Yellow  Sunflower Head
from the Sunflower Patch On Crooked Creek!

What began as a seed,
planted by "Mr. Ed" in the Sunflower Patch,
grew despite the severe drough on the Prairie,
and now is dried and ready to be harvested for next years crop !

 Except. . .
I have one more use for this dried Sunflower head. . .

A  Sunflower cloche !

Seeing these last year in the Land of Blog,
I vowed to try to make one for Fall
this year On Crooked Creek !

When "Mr. Ed" took me out to the garage,
I was giddy with excitement at the sight of the drying heads!

On Crooked Creek,
                the life of this Sunflower
                                          is coming full circle!

Until next time. . .
