Sunflowers are in full bloom, peak time for butterflies and Nature’s warning that the lazy hazy days of summer are numbered.
The first plant to show up in my new “prairie” this year was a volunteer sunflower — center stage, like it was the star of the show. Not knowing if anything else would come up, I left it alone. Now, it is over 12′ tall and shading those few wild flowers that did come up. The stalk is 4″ in diameter!
If it shows up next spring it will be moved to its own little corner.
Thought for the Day: Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.
