Our little farmhouse

This is our farmhouse, from our garden. My hubby loves his garden and works tirelessly there. I didn't realize he had planted some sunflowers in the midst of the garden...among the different varieties of indian corn, white pumpkins, varieties of squash, pole beans...

I love Sunflowers, and love vases filled with them.


These sunflowers, the plant itself is 7 feet tall! Oh my!
I am bringing one in...

I love fresh flowers, or in this case the fresh flower!
blessings,
Debbie

Love your farm! I can't wait till next year when we do our garden. With the house building it was more than enough we could handle along with the goats so next year I am looking forward to it. Love it Debbie!

Hi Debbie:
Great pictures of the house and garden (and hubby working!!!) I love the white porch railing you have. And what a gorgeous sunflower. We lost the last of our garden with the snow we got over the weekend.

Is there anything more bright and happy than a sunflower! We got a big surprise when we discovered that the birds we feed had planted some sunflowers for us in scattered areas of our flower garden. We almost weeded them out until we figured out that it was from the dropped seeds. Who knew birds were such talented gardeners!

Love your home Debbie, and sunflowers are amongst my favouite flowers. We grew some last year but the monkeys ate the flowers, well the seeds, before we could enjoy them for long.
