Sunflowers on a Monday morning

I just had to share our Sunflowers today....they just make me happy, I hope they will you too. You can see our house in the background. It was so beautiful out this morning. The beans are doing very well too, they are on the fence.

It is so fun to watch them grow. I think they grow during the night because every morning they are bigger. We will use them in the winter to feed the birds. We sit them on table in the yard after Halloween.
Good morning Baxter, he has been in another fight....I was just bragging that he got through spring without a battle...

What a ham he is.....he is using up his nine lives.

The Sunflowers look great! Did you sow the seeds or set out plants? I have tried a time or two and haven't had much luck.

Just stumbled onto your blog, and had to leave a comment. What beautiful pictures! And the art work is gorgeous!

I am a suburban mom dreaming of living off on a farm. Thanks for sharing yours!

Wow! That last picture from the side (with the very handsome Baxter preening in front) really emphasizes their size. Beautiful!

I love sunflowers. ND has humungous fields of them and every single head turns toward the east in the am and the west in the evening.

Oh, your sunflowers look so pretty! I love them....they always remind me of my grandparents. There were lots of sunflowers at their ranch.
