Thankful for the Mammoth Sunflower, Cute Kentucky Birds, and Sweet Country Home Decor

The Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents and their real estate needs have much to be thankful for including this cute fall scarecrow clip art

It’s Thankful Thursday at SandwichINK Real Estate Info. A time to share the things we are thankful for this week – on the web, in our communities, and with our families. Here’s my list. I’d love to read yours – just leave it in the comments or link up and I’ll pop over to visit. 🙂

I’m thankful for the fun we’ve had with the Mammoth Sunflower seeds and other varieties my grandchildren and I planted to grow a Sunflower House.  It’s been so intriguing and the fun keeps going on!

I am so thankful for the fun we have had this year with the Sunflower House - it added sweet spice to our landscaping designs - fun for our senior and grandchildren gardening projects - and now will be great food for the Kentucky birds

I’m thankful for the Kentucky butterflies, birds, and critters in our yard that encourage my senior mom as she is busy with her gardening and provide us with great learning activities for grandparents and their grandchildren as we learn more about them from THEIR playing with and munching on the Sunflower House. After we put a couple of the beautiful yellow flowers on our pile of logs, we found the remains to indicate that a squirrel or some birds had enjoyed a yummy and healthy snack. 🙂

I am thankful the Kentucky Red Northern Cardinal birds and the squirrels are enjoying the Mammoth Sunflower seeds from the Sunflower House activities for grandparents and their grandchildren

I’m thankful  for the tiny hints of Fall that we’re seeing – in some of the leaves that are starting to change color, in the Sunflowers, and in the cooler nights – hooray. :) My thoughts are definitely turning to ideas for autumn art activities for grandparents and their grandchildren to enjoy creating some intriguing autumn country home decor such as centerpieces and wreaths. SO fun! 

As this autumn leaves clipart reminds us - fall is coming complete with pumpkins activities for our grand kids and updating needs for our senior parents landscaping designs

I’m thankful for all of you in the Sandwich Generation who caring for elderly parents – including helping them with their real estate needs, as well as helping with the grandchildren.  And I’m thankful for Greg's General Store for hosting Thankful Thursday today to encourage us all, Fertilizer and Flaunt Your Flowers Friday to remind us to stay on top of all our boomer and senior home landscaping designs and gardening chores, and My3Boybarians for Sweet Shot Tuesday next week – full of delightful photos and great tips to help us save all these fun family memories with our easy to use digital camera

What a lovely sunflower! Though it seems like summer just began yesterday, I too am thankful for the first signs of fall.

Hi Alea, Hasn’t it been a fast summer! A fast year, actually. 🙂

I am glad you linked in today! I wish summer would last longer! we have very long winters in Alberta…and fall is just a reminder…although beautiful…I wish I could hold it off forever!
lovely sunflower!

Hi Tootsie, Thank you 🙂 I have a friend who lives in Idaho and her winters are a lot longer as well. But her autumn comes a bit earlier than ours which is delightful. Course her winter does too. Thanks for a fun blot party! 🙂

Love the sunflowers! Beautiful!!

You asked on my blog how water lilies start… I am not sure to be exact. I found mine at Menards. They barely looked like a plant. It comes in a pot that had just a tiny little something in the center. But after a few weeks in the water the lily pads started to grow up to the top! 🙂

Hi Jennifer, Thanks so much for the info. That really sounds cool. I may have to suggest it to my senior mom for a fun gardening project. 🙂

Thanks for the great photo idea of taking a picture everyday of something growing. Love it. great sunflower too!

Hi Susan, You’re very welcome. I would never have thought of it if we hadn’t been having so much fun with the Sunflower House online AND off. But once I was doing it, it’s been so cool to see the tiny changes in the Mammoth Sunflower and the other Sunflowers! Have a fun time with your project. 🙂

The sunflower is gorgeous. Nature is so beautiful, it makes me thankful too.

Hi Autumn Belle, Thank you. We’ve had so much fun with the Sunflower House! It’s truly been a blessing. 🙂
