The sunflowers out back next to our storage shed are getting tall (see largest photo), but they haven't started blooming yet. We were late getting them planted this year.
We did plant a variety in our garden and as you can see they are in full bloom.
I finally got a hummer to stop by the feeder yesterday. I changed from the mix to making my own out of sugar and water. They seem to like the homemade variety best. I took this shot through the window, which has a screen. I need to take that darn screen off!
The goldfinches were busy working on Bro O's sunflowers last evening.
On the way down to the garden we saw a red-bellied woodpecker and an indigo bunting, but they were too fast for me.
We had a visitor while working in the garden. This guy lives about a mile from Bro O's house. He stopped by for a visit. He was very friendly. Here he comes for a pet after sitting in the pond for a while.
Needless to say, I didn't hang around to get soaked...
