Pretty wet coneflowers from our garden yesterday. We had a dreary 2 days of rain and cloudy skies. Today we have wonderful sunshine. We love sunshine!

Teenager Sunflower & Middle Age Sunflower – FOTD – August 8

These were both planted at the same time but one is fully bloomed and the other have yet to open. I love this time of the year! I have a few more planted in our front yard that I planted really late. Hoping they’ll grow quick enough to bloom before the REALLY rainy and windy weather sets in. I also hope the deer will not get to them.

Good Morning! – FOTD – August 7

2020 - Good Morning Sunflower Quote

Here’s a pretty sunflower for those of us who need an extra pick me upper.

This is a picture I’ve taken years ago. It’s one of my favorites and it was taken from a park nearby. I’d love to grow these type of mammoth sunflowers in my garden someday.

Oh Happy Day! FOTD – August 6

This photo was taken while on our family day trip in Shelton, WA. This beautiful rose was right next to their post office calling out “Hi” to me. It was a bright and sunny day.

FOTD – August 4 – Sunflowers

These are two out three sunflowers that survived our backyard garden. They have finally opened up a few days ago.

I want to be like a sunflower; so that even on the darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight .  ~ Unknown

A Visit to Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm – FOTD

I’ve always dreamed of having a flower farm. We’re about 20 years past when we should’ve started one. It would’ve been crazy to start a farm with my husband’s past work schedule and little ones in tow. So the dream never came to fruition. We are very fortunate to have farms that we can visit in the area. We can just enjoy what our local farms produce and the little flowers I grow in our garden.

We absolutely enjoyed our visit to Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm. It’s a cute 3 acre farm full of color. There were so many varieties of Dahlia to choose from. You can pick your own flowers or you can purchase already-made bouquets. It was so fun to pick our own flowers. It was really hard to stop picking and clipping. I loved it! We shared what we brought home with our neighbors.

Here are some photos of the lovely Dahlias growing at the farm.

Almost Ready – Sunflowers – Flower of the Day (FOTD)

These two sunflowers are just about to bloom. I love seeing all the little specs of what looks like hair on them. If you look closely you can also see a few spider webs.

There are so many spiders in our garden and around our house. I never fail to run into a web coming out of our house each morning.
