Still Kickin’

I am still kickin’. Been busy on the farm bushogging the fields. With our old tractor half the time is cutting brush and half the time repairing tractor and bush hog. Finally got it done. The grandkids are in for another week, so any posting will be spotty. A few pics of butterflies on Mexican Sunflowers at the end of this post. First time we have grown the Mexican Sunflowers. They put out beautiful and plentiful blooms…

  1. Nice shots of the butterflies. I’m glad you said Mexican sunflower. Otherwise I would have thought zinnias.

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      Thank You. First time we have ever grown them. A little large diameter than large zinnias. Each plant puts on a lot of blooms. Not sure how many total as they seem to be still putting the flowers on lower down on the plant. Lovely shade of orange petals. The plant about 5 to 6 ft tall so far…

    Beautiful blooms, funny, no seeds. So sun flower seems like odd name. They sure put out a gorgeous background for the butterfly pix. Eagles and Egret really nice as well. Happy for you to have the grands so often, it’s so great for them too.

      Ellen Bunnell,
      So far birds have not gone after the seeds. Will be interesting to see if they do. The birds are eating the zinna seeds now that our regular sunflowers have all been eaten by them. Was nice to see the eagle pair perched together. Think this is the pair I watched for years until they moved their nest and the feds signed it off where you can’t get close enough to observe them as I did for seven years. A lot of egrets below the dams now. It is fun to have the grands, then cause you to do some things you have not done in years. Went to the beach at Kentucky Dam yesterday and swam and had a pick nick lunch. Have not done that in a long time. Sure was fun…

    Had to look more closely, sure enough seeds.
