Well, Fall is definitely coming...
to N. Illinois.
No, this isn't another Sunflower post...I just wanted you to see how he birds, squirrels, and raccoons have picked all these sunflower heads CLEAN!
I really found the heads interesting though, just as they are.
I managed to roll the MONSTER pumpkin *(without any mice or wheels) to the deck and then lift this up on the bench in the backyard.
The Pumpkin is so round, but flat on the back side. I was cleaning out the sunflower heads while picking beans on the ladder and brought down so many of the heads as they were empty. My shoe is an 11 womens' so you can get a gander at how big this huge pumpkin really is.
So while I'm plopping the sunflowers on the bench...I get a great idea---to maybe make a display in the front yard with these.
Thinking I planned to use an upside down galvanized round tub, but, when I went to the garden center to get a few MUMS they were selling bales of fresh hay for $6.99.
The hay bale becomes a shelf and mulch all rolled into one.
