Sunflowers

I am linking up with Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday.
I am enjoying being outside so much during the summer months. We planted sunflowers in our garden and they have been so pretty this year. I love having them up on our porch so we can enjoy them.


My guy and I spend hours out here just sipping on ice cold tea and watching our chickens.


He added a cover over part of our deck and it has made it so nice. I found an old gold chandelier and painted it bright red, it is the perfect lighting for this area. This is just one of my favorite places to be day or night.







The bees are busy doing their job.



In the garden.

We always love watching our chickens while we are outside. They are so funny, each one has its own personality.

Beautiful sunflowers! We're growing them as well, but they've gotten off to a bad start as a squirrel came and dug them up. I hope to have some in vases, like you have, by mid-summer!

I love sunflowers! Why didn't I plant any this year.. Yours are beautiful. I love your red chandelier and the checkered table cloth.. I would love to be your newest follower but something is up with the Followers gadget it is missing on both of our blogs.

Happy Friday hope you and yours have a beautiful weekend.
hugs from Savannah, Cherry
