7-7-10 vacation brain
I have some volunteer sunflowers in the Des Moines yard this summer. Not hard to do, since I was feeding the squirrels regularly this winter with piles of sunflower seeds.

I was amazed at the blooming process: these pictures just span 4 days last week!

OK.... I am on vacation..... and vacation time away from the computer begins NOW! Give me a few days and I'll be back.


  1. wow-- what a sunflower. it's huge!!!

    enjoy the vacation!

  2. Sad news, I arrived home on Friday and the sunflower head was GONE! Dang raccoons no doubt.. they do it to me every year!
