Here On Crooked Creektt,
"Mr. Ed" grows Sunflowers just for me!!!
Each Season as the seedlings grow into stalks
and as the first buds begin to arrive,
there is a giddiness that embarks upon my being!
Our Sunflower Patch
is located on the West side of On Crooked Creektt's Garden's.
Abundant Spring showers gave "Mr. Ed" one of the best patches in a decade!
Long before the Sunflowers make their appearance,
"Mr. Ed" places a hay rake in the Sunflower Patch
for visual interest in the bare Garden spot.
He also hangs the Tin Man made by my Dad
and wrought iron Sunflowers from Roadhouse Antiques.
Observing from the deck,
I can literally watch the Sunflowers grow from one week to the next!!!
From Mother's Day~to~Flag Day,
each day is a continual transformation in the Sunflower patch!
By mid July,
timid Sunflowers begin to open their faces to the sun
until the entire patch is an explosion of varying hues. . .
yellows, browns, reds and oranges!
On Crooked Creektt, this past week,
I've counted a dozen blossoms already!!!
Some Sunflowers have a single bloom per stem,
while others have a stem with multiple blossoms!!!
Regardless the color, the shape or the size
I say, "The more Sunflowers in the Patch. . .
the merrier On Crooked Creektt!!!
Until next time. . .
