The surprise lilies, naked ladies, did surprise me as the bulbs sent up one more stem with buds on the end of it. It is funny how they shoot up a sprout and then the buds develop on the ends putting a cluster of blooms on the end of the stem. This one has fallen to the ground because of rain last week. I have two other stems still standing.
This sunflower is the red brown one that I planted. It is opening now and should be completely open by the end of the week. I see there are multiple buds on it unlike the larger yellow sunflowers that put out only one large flower.
I have a dozen of the sunflowers all at different heights right now. The brownish one will be a shorter variety as it was bred to be a pretty flower for gardens. The big yellow ones are interesting to watch as the tower over one's head once fully grown.
I have yet to get the other oxalis that I have in the house into a bigger container. Perhaps today that will happen. I will carry it out side and put it on the patio table and it will be glaring at me to repot it.
I looked up at this the other day and decided that the shelf is understated too much. I like the item that holds the wooden shelf and I like the shell, but I have so many old things that could be sitting on that shelf to keep the shell company. I saw that a wren had made a nest in the cavity of the support but no bird stayed in there to raise their young.The extra large spreading juniper bush kept it covered up and now the bush is gone so it is in full view.
It is Monday and I am moving slow today. I will go out and finish the rest of my mowing while it is cool and I am sure I will be doing other things out there. The frame job hovers over me and I need to get it done. We won't be extremely hot today and we are actually seeing the sun today. I hope everyone has a good Monday. Thanks for stopping by today.
