That's interesting. Let us know how it goes!

my husband and I went to a bee class last Saturday and bought a small bee house for bees. It looks like a can with straws in it and the bees like to lay the eggs in the end of the tubes.

We have also talked about getting a hive; this is the first I heard about the Great Sunflower Project, thanks for the post

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

You do need a black pot lol. Hang it out there so they can see it. Write on the outside of the pot...Chicken Stew, then tell them if they don't behave that is what they will become hehe

Our Sunflowers popped up from last years seeds. And we had plenty. We had one pop up in the front yard from the wild bird seeds, but it didn't last as long. Probably not enough sun where it popped up.

Our Sunflowers are starting to come to an end :(...A Bumblebee checked me out though. I was wearing a colorful shirt. It must have thought I was a beautiful flower for a second or two. Then he dashed off.

It is one of my favorites. It needs such a small amount of care and it flourishes making this barren land gorgeous

I like Russian Sage. We don't have it planted here, but it sure is a pretty plant!

I was taking pictures of my Sunflowers again today, when my Hubby and I noticed the Bees were still flying all around and landing on the Sunflowers. I thought the Bees looked a little smaller then usual, and as I was researching what types of Bees they might be I came across this website. It's interesting. I'm going to try and participate, so just in case anyone else is interested....Here is the link.
