Photo journaling-I planted a few sunflower seeds and they actually grew!

I planted an old pack of sunflower seeds behind my house using the stab and drop method.

 Take screwdriver. Stab the hard ground. Drop seed in hole. Half-heartedly push dirt over hole with finger. Wait.

 This method works quite well!
Almost ready.

Getting closer-the view from outside.

Made it!  The view from inside.

The view from behind is equally as pretty as the view from the front!

One of the stalks fell over, so I brought it in.  So cheery!
I want to dry the flowers now, so that the birds can eat the seeds. :)

Photo journaling-Rocco, 5 1/2 years

My handsome big boy

The Roc's serious look

A dog and his ball

Such a handsome lad.

I love him so!

Photo journaling-new life in an abandoned flower pot

This never fails to amaze me-I'm so glad I had a birds eye view!
The robins decided to build a nest in one of my abandoned flower pots that was hanging from the deck.
* Day 1*

*Day 2*

*Day 3*

*Day 4*

Mama on her nest-note the piece of plastic built into the nest.

Newborns!  (Only two eggs hatched.)
*Day 16*

Feed me, feed me!!!
*Day 17*

A different perspective-this photo taken from the ground.  All other photos taken from the deck.
*Day 21*

What a difference 12 days makes!
*Day 16 and day 27*

Mustering up the courage to fly away like brother/sister did!  I swear he/she stood like this for 24 hours.  But he/she, of course, eventually took the leap!
*Day 28*

Photo journaling-beautiful September morning

Here comes the sun-do do do do.

Dewy clover

Corn in the morn

Dewy wheat

Coming into the light

Toy soldier lichen on my deck railing

Perfectly imperfect spider web in the pasture
I'm so glad I grabbed my camera the other morning when my husband asked me to pick him up at his rock pile (on the gator), over the hill from our house and through the pasture field.  (He was repairing roads around his mom's farm that day.)  What a beautiful morning!
