It was a wonderful weekend indeed…hotter than the norm. I just never seem to get done with gardening of this and that. We had some rain a couple of nights and believe some of the already heavy sunflowers started blooming more and the trunks shifted in the soil somewhat.
I just did major surgery on many tall, tall sunflower plants that were sweeping beautifully over the driveway. One day it was okay and then it was overwhelming (smile).
I would have loved to have arranged a couple of bouquets for the neighbors who don’t have my transplants. However, had to put the trimmings in a big water bucket because of it being so “gasping hot” as already have had sun poisoning this summer from being out in the early morning sun.
It was sad but nothing goes to waste because of the finches and other critters who will grab a sunflower and chomp away on it.
Maybe, I’ll go out later with vases and make those arrangements for the neighbors.
Oh and almost didn’t remember to say that my little “Secret Garden” in the middle of the city is certified by American Wildlife. If you plan to start your own, remember that water is a magnet.
