Such gorgeous color and beauty, including your sweet wife, right in your backyard. The Sunflowers are huge, like you said, and their tallness is amazing. The wildness of the flower garden seems magical with the close up photos of the vivid yellow birds, butterflies and bees. The angelic white of the egrets’ flying by just adds to that look.
Thanks for adding your wife to the photo, to give some perspective to the size of the red sunflowers.
My wife has created a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the bounty of birds, butterflies, etc that come. In front of where she is standing are tomatoes, peppers, basil, and fennel that provides for us too. She said the sunflowers were Queens not Red Velvet as I had recalled. Measured the tallest at twelve and a half feet yesterday. Your welcome, glad you enjoyed the perspective shot…
Wow, those sunflowers are tall! Your wife obviously has a green thumb.
There seem to be a lot more butterflies around this year.
I like those shots of the egrets. I wish we had them here but I’ve never seen one.
Yes on both counts. She started raising worms last fall to use the castings to plant seeds in and add when transplanting. It has made a great difference. Somehow tomato seeds got in the mix and almost everything she potted had a tomato volunteer. We have tomato plants everywhere of a large variety which we don’t know what they are. I missed the cattle egrets passing through in the spring so it was good to see them moving back south I spose’. Thank You…
