The Most Loved Sunflower


I was hoping to get some Peep and Peep-squeaks pictures this morning, but...wait, have I talked about Peep on the blog?  Peep is my cardinal friend who yells at me when the feeder is empty...and has taught all his kids how to train me as well.  Two batches of kids so far this summer and I'm wondering if he's got a third on the way.  

Anyway, the sunflower next to the bird feeder is a volunteer, growing up between the cracks in the sidewalk.  It's been one of my favorites this summer.  Click to biggify and look at all the blooms!  And all the birds.   I'm not sure if it will produce seeds this fall, but it's been a favorite flower perch for everyone waiting their turn at the feeder.

Peep and all the little Peeps and Mrs Peep probably love that sunflower's seeds too. And I be they've helped to plant her progeny.

Great pic, love everyone waiting their turn, no pushing or shoving. Such a wildlife friendly farm you have.

How wonderful to have a perfectly placed sunflower. We have a large hemlock just off our deck. A Mrs. Peep tell me every morning when she is ready for breakfast.

What a wonderful waiting area before being seated at the 'table' :)
