Early in the season "we" (which was really more myself) planted a sunflower house for the boys. I planted it in the old strawberry patch, so the boys might be able to forage a snack while they are in there. So far it is growing nicely, and it s a cheery thing to look at during the stormy weather. It's 90's all week for us, with thunderstorms most days. A good time to read since I can't get out and do the chores. I like letting Mother Nature water the garden for me!
