With all this rain it is really depressing around here. In fact I dressed in all black to get ready for work, went into the closet when I was ready to leave and put on my black trench coat, picked up the black umbrella and pocket book then out the door I went. Ready for a dreadful day.
These sunflowers were planted by the birds. Our neighbors have a huge bird feeding area on the other side of those trees and the birds love to eat next to the phlox on the mulch (which is where the sunflowers grew up from). I couldn't bear to cut them down even though they really stood out in the low growing garden.
