The long hours and demand for landscaping takes its toll, so today I am sharing some fun pictures of the sunny volunteers in my front garden. When I am supposed to be working, I often look out the window or sit on my porch. We get lots of birds migrating through Houston and I decided to be a little mini-mart for them starting last winter. I didn’t have a bird feeder so I just scattered seeds on my front path. Some of the seeds made their way into the flower beds and sprouted. Although they are completely out of place, I couldn’t resist letting them grow. Now they are ripe and the birds are harvesting the seeds.
hahha There seems to be a great love for sunflowers this year in my neighborhood. So many people seemed to have planted them deliberately I can only guess it must be a little fad. Your post has inspired me to go out and photograph them. We have the wild ones popping up in our lawn. My son and I have been mowing around them. Makes the job a little harder but they are so pretty it is worth it.
