Nothin' But Yellow!

Yesterday, Saturday, I went to work at 7:00 a.m. and stopped for the day at 4:00 p.m. Daughter, a.k.a. Tex, (not TexWisGirl, just Tex) came down to help. To add to the short staff in our office, our newest clerk's brother passed away and she will be off work Monday and Tuesday, our nightmare days! So, Tex was kind enough to pitch in. I'm still way behind, so will be heading off to work as soon as I finish this post. I'm only staying 3 or 4 hours though. Really, that's all!

The Democratic party has picked a successor for the office, but he won't start until the 11th. He will be green as grass as to the duties, but I'm sure he will quickly adjust. 

Friday night we went down to the garden to pick tomatoes, zucchini, acorn squash, and okra. We also pulled up a few radishes. I use the term 'we' loosely. JD, a.k.a. Hubs (daughter doesn't like the word Hubs, so from now on he will be JD. JD is an inside joke, which I may explain later. No time today) JD did most of the picking while I wondered around with my camera. Well, I did pick the okra.
 The Gold Finches were out in force. Enjoying SIL's sunflowers.


Above is one of my sunflowers. It is only about 4 inches from tip of petal to tip of petal. Not sure the variety, but they are pretty.
 Now back to SIL's. Beautiful, huge..
...and stately.

Next best thing about sunflowers, with the best thing being their happy beautiful flowers faces, is that the birds love them too!

Gotta love how the goldfinches enjoy sunflowers. Hope you really do stay at the office for 3 or 4 hours...and no more. ;)

Love, love, LOVE this post! And such wonderful images. All warm, glowing and bright summer yellows.

The Goldfinch is such a fabulous added attraction. I've only seen ONE in my area, so a bit green with envy here!!

Thanks for linking up this week at the Bird D'Pot.
