I just had to post a quick picture of the first of the Sunflowers to open here in my garden. My sunflowers are all thanks to birdseed not my planting but they are such a treasure and the bees have a field day with them and that makes me happy. As the summer progresses so many different kinds of Sunflowers will emerge, different shaped leaves and colors from pure light yellow all the way up to a reddish shade that is gorgeous. But for right now this beauty is one of the first and I was very thrilled to see it open at last!
Also yesterday while braving the craziness at Wally World I found this little guy and as it was on sale I just had to have it. I am a huge fan of Delphiniums but have never had any of my own and here was this sweet little guy who only gets 12" high!!! "Summer Nights" it is called and look at that blue, isn't that just the most lovely thing? So home it came and this weekend I will find the perfect spot for it, hopefully near some Queen Anne's Lace as the white flowers would set off this guy perfectly. Have a delightful 4th fellow gardeners!
