Some critter ran off with the first sunflower that bloomed before I could get a pic of it...and it seems they're quite tasty as you can see the bite out of the second one.
I just can't get mad at the critters, though...one year a groundhog ate our tomatoes, so we don't grow them anymore....but he also took a bite of a jalapeno & left it laying there uneaten...I'll bet that was a big surprise...and he left us & our plants alone after that.
The Brussels sprout is growing quite nicely...this pic was taken a week ago & it's even bigger now. I can't get more recent pix off the camera right now...we had to get a new printer & the camera card won't fit into the new printer...and the software for the camera cord isn't working...so we had to order some external drive thing that will allow us to still use my trusty old digital camera. Hopefully it will arrive before the weekend since I have yo-yos & quilt flowers to share...and more pix to take for my Etsy shop. I've got some new vintage stuff in there if you care to take a look.
This pretty tree is in our back yard. It's been there since I was quite young. We always called it the Tulip Tree...it's actually a Tulip Poplar. It blooms late in May through early June...and the flowers are so pretty. I love that rare clear blue sky in NE Ohio, too.
This is what the flowers look like...and after the seed pods develop & open, there are very cool thorn looking things that eventually fall to the ground...free collage supplies!
And finally...here's what Gracie loves to do on a warm almost summer afternoon...she's so sound asleep she can't even keep her tongue in her mouth! I sure wish I could sleep like that.
I'll be back once I can get more pix off the camera...until then, enjoy your almost Summer & do something creative.
