Here is my lamb's ear. The kids love to feel the leaves - they are so very soft. Like a lamb's ear. :-) The only thing about it is that it keeps moving every year. A little farther, a little farther, a little farther into the yard!
My echinachea is right outside my kitchen window. The butterflies and bees love it. A butterfly came by while I was taking pictures but it didn't like me moving around, so no picture. Maybe later. But the bug stayed obviously.
Moved all of my pots to the front porch since Jason is working on the deck. So, some of these will be moved back once the deck is finished - like the citronella geranium.
My grandma always had RED, not scarlet or burgundy but RED, geraniums on her front porch every summer. She passed away when I was in college. She was one of my best friends and I still miss her very much. I am tearing up just thinking about it... Anyway, I plant RED geraniums every year in honor of her.
These are sunflowers that have grown from the 'sterile' bird seed that I buy. We have always had a few sprout but NEVER this many! They are going to be really cool. I hope they grow flowers; I don't know if they are like hybrids??? We'll see. Has anyone had these come up in their yards?
Well, that is the front/side yard. The back yard will have to be another day.
I am ready for bed. Ruth and Eian had friends over today, and Abbe went to one of her friend's homes. I am much more of a 'helicoptering' mama when I have other people's kids under my watch. I hope they all had fun; I know my kids were really tired.
Also, I promised Abbe that we would get up and go to yard sales, the farmer's market and I need to go get some more paint for the shed and area by the deck.
