Sleeping with Sunflowers

I am not sure the title of this blog is 'fitting', but I like the ring to it. Just like I like the book!

I did something new this season on the farm.

I went around randomly, all over, and poked sunflowers seeds into soil :)

Around the house, near the barn, by the garden, on the property line......

Giant, Mammoth Sunflower seeds!

Hopefully, in a few weeks, we'll be 'Sleeping with Sunflowers'!

So good to see life emerging from the soil. Around here heavy rains washed away my seedlings and rabbits are nibbling away the rest. For the first time I'll be replanting. Your photos give me hope!

Mine have sprouted, but the secret is still safe (for now). LOL

Last year I had beautiful, tiny, baby Sunflowers reaching for the sky! And then those dang wild rabbits came by and ate them down to the ground. Keep Savannah close by...
