The first of the sunflowers are in bloom, so now is an exciting time at Groundhog Hill.
One sunflower is so tall that a stepladder is required in order to cut it. Since, I have no stepladder handy, I’m just leaving it to bloom where the honeybees can enjoy it to their little hearts’ content.
The zinnias are going gangbusters, as well. My sister-in-law, Laura, gifted me with many packets of new seed this past Christmas in an effort to get me to grow a color other than red (the theme of 2012, I tried to explain).
