I didn’t plant these sunflowers on purpose. I didn’t think we had the right kind of soil since our dirt is so sandy. Of all of the years with a bird feeder, this is the first time I had a rogue sunflower seed take root. The double one came up first but wasn’t very big. The bigger one came up right next to our petunia pot a few days later. I think an animal, maybe a squirrel, ate it after a few days. It was all torn up on the ground near the feeder.

I had to get even more shots of my hibiscus plant.
One night I went out to move the garbage can to the street and saw this black racer cutting across my driveway. I was glad I had my phone in my pocket so I could quickly snap this.
We’ve had a lot of duck families cruising past our dock. This was one of the first in early May.
Critters and color galore!
Fabulous colors and wonderful details on the flowers. Of course, the critters made me smile, even the snake 🙂
