I managed to get three sunflowers out of the five or six seedlings that were in the ground under the bird feeders. Volunteers is what they are called, seeds you never plant but come up all by themselves to bloom.
The wild gardens have lots of volunteers.
Liatris and Rudbeckia in the wild gardens….and a whole lot of raspberry canes. I suppose if we left them alone we would get raspberries….I mow the entire area every fall.
Now for different types of volunteers. All the hoopla from the All School Reunion is over. Far Guy did an excellent job getting arrangements made for his class get together of 47 years. Just down the road Jo and classmate Barry planned their 50th Class Reunion. I saw all the work that went into both events. All the volunteers that made the weekend a success deserve a big thank you! Unless you have done it yourself or helped you have no idea the hours that are spent.
We ordered prints of the photos from Far Guys Reunion and one day this week they will all go into the folder he has full of class memorabilia. The last of the bowls and misc. items left behind have been returned to their owners. All three of “the old farts” that worked so hard are exhausted and wondering what to do next …besides relax and look back on what a good time they had.
