Sunflowers, Ducks and Lindy Ann


Alan is so proud of his sunflowers! He wanted you to see how tall they were this year...he is over 6 ft and they tower over him.....he figures they are about 9 or so ft high....

This one plant has over 7 blooms..last year, his flowers did poorly so he is so delighted this summer......it all depends on the weather, I think..we had a cool summer last year..and are in a scorcher now.....evidently they like the heat......amazing, aren't they?



                       Why is Mrs. stretching her neck out so far ?




                                         A good scratch of course!
She just loves Alan so much..follows him (and me too) around the yard....wanted attention and scratching....the heat has bothers her quite a bit..we mist her as much as possible and have a large container to swim in.....
As I said before, this is a warm summer...been about 100+ for the last two weeks..the garden has really suffered as we can't use water like we'd like to..just too expensive......we dug up all the spent peas and beans..getting the bed ready for fall planting......I have quite a bit frozen, thankfully.....


I also wanted to share a wonderful new pattern that Oh Sew Dollin 
is featuring right now.....if you haven't seen her wonderful doll patterns...you are in for a treat.....they are so delightful..like eye candy and bring out the little girl in all of us ladies....I ordered one..couldn't resist.....meet Lindy Ann...isn't she sweet? I don't have any grandchildren yet but this doll is so nice...she is jointed and dress-able so you can make outfits for different seasons...I just love her hair...
