recent post, it has seemed a little surprising to have sunflowers blooming in April. And now chrysanthemums!
At any rate, there was no question what the contents of today's vase would be. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to feature these two together in a vase. In springtime.
But, in fact, the sunflowers seem to be supporting a good deal of small garden life. I had to remove a miniscule bee and a large spider from kitchen sink to garden after bringing the first sunflower in. For the second, there was the wasp I slid onto the blades of my pruning shears and transferred to another sunflower. I think everything was holding on hard to any shelter from the winds. But there are limits as to what one wants indoors. I preferred to just have flowers!
