Last Monday and tuesday evening storms blew thru our neighborhood. They lasted no more than 20 minutes but had the force of small tornadoes. Trees were down along the roadside, power outages were plenty and much needed rain fell on a very thirsty lawn.
When I went out to survey the damages, my heart sank. All of my beautiful tall sunflowers were down, bent and damaged.
Every year I PROMISE to stake them up and every year I forget. One good storm always gets them and breaks my heart.
Last night it killed me to have to cut and trim some of them down... but there were still plenty that had life left in them.
I brought them inside and let the kids oohh and ahh over the beautiful flowers I GREW from SEED!!
So now they adorn my table, another reminder of God's beauty.
And next year, when I blog about planting my sunflower seeds... (cause you know I will)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remind me to STAKE them up!
Have a great weekend.
