Last year my Mom gave me some starts to Rose of Sharon bushes and they are blooming like crazy this year. I have the white that is shown, a medium pink with a dark center, a darker pink with a darker center, and a lavender with a dark center. The bees and hummingbirds love them!
The sunflowers are doing great this year! This morning when I went out to feed some of the row was facing East, and the other was facing West. It was almost like they were having a chat until the sun came up. :-)
This one with lots of smaller flowers on it was a volunteer; it is so tall! It has over 50 flowers on it.

Sunflowers make me smile! The first sunflower field I saw was in South Dakota in 2000 when I was headed to Sturgis with a friend. Wow....it was early morning and all those yellow heads were facing the sun. It was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen.
Until later...Karen and Tripp who is trying to figure out a way to get to them...sunflowers are yummy!
