Nature Friday - Ugly In The Beauty

 Thanks Rosy for hosting this event.

As regular readers will know, Lady is obsessed with her sunflowers. They are one of her joy bringers. 

This is her second year growing them (and now she will grow them forever as they are so easy). However, they have had a rough summer. You see, August was the rainiest August since 1893. Even last weekend, we had a lot of storms with intense rain. The sunflowers have not done great in this rain. Some have snapped, some have just been uprooted. Man and Lady have done their best to save what they can. Those they couldn't, Lady cut and brought inside so she can at least enjoy them.

Inspecting the flowers (aka eating the compost Lady put out)


  1. They are such beautiful and cheerful flowers! The birds will be enjoying the sunflower seeds as they come.

  2. sunflowers are a source of Joy to me also. So sorry to see the damage to yours and hope the rain goes away soon. yuck on eating the compost Hailey. save the sunflower seeds for another year

  3. Lady did well with her Sunflowers. Such crazy weather too much rain in some places and zero in other places.

  5. They sure were beautiful while they lasted!

  6. We love sunflowers! But we had to stop planting them because the Evil Squirrel Cartel would cut them down and eat them.

  7. Your sunflowers are beautiful! It's too bad mother nature has done her best to knock them down.

  8. Dear cousin, hurray for flowers! Double-hurray for compost! Yum!

  9. Lovely Sunflowers.
