All lined up for judging…

At first I thought the squirrels (or birds?) had been busy. Then I realized there was an artistic flair at work here. I couldn’t help but feel a little like I was at The Fair and these blooms were waiting for their purple, blue, red and yellow ribbons. When I walked by the next day (sadly without my camera) they had been stripped of almost every seed. If I had a ribbon I would have awarded this one first place.


  1. Those newer shaggy sunflowers are almost like giant marigolds. How nice that someone left them out for the birds: I guess they judged them "edible"!

  2. Who left them? A runaway child? A man grieving for his wife? What whim or delay made it happen?

    I love mysteries.

  3. I've never seen this type of sunflower before ... they look like balls of flame and I love the decayed, ripped up ones so much ....

  4. MulchMaid, almost like marigolds...but better!

    Hoover, I like the way you think.

    Reubix, glad you enjoyed...I can see them growing in your most excellent landscape! (and then you could paint them too!)
