The Grandkids Sunflower House Entertained a Wind-Surfing Bee!

Delightful summer storms to cool us off and add a bit of exhilaration to our Sandwich Generation days! 🙂 As I wrote at SandwichINK, the Sunflower House, and our house, have enjoyed some summer wind, rain, thunder, and lightning. I had fun snapping a ton of photos of all the goings on and was particularly intrigued with one very adventurous little honey bee.

These bees were determined to hang on and these flowers were determined to survive no matter how windy it was

At first, I thought he was just very tenacious. But after watching him a bit, I'm more inclined to think he was having a blast "windsurfing" in my giant Mammoth Sunflower!

This wind-surfing little honey bee is great for landscaping designs as he helps pollinate the various plants sweetly

I, of course, am thrilled because honey bees are great for our landscaping designs, thanks to their wonderful pollinating plans. And the Sunflower House has definitely proven to be good at attracting bees lately.

Looking for flowers for bees and butterflies to add to your delighful landscaping designs - think sunflowers

But mostly, I just had fun snapping his cute little picture with my easy to use digital camera so I can share the sights with my grandchildren and all of you! 🙂  Speaking of pictures, be sure to visit Sweet Shot Tuesday, as well, for more delightful and intriguing photos! And, don't forget to…

I love sunflowers, they are so bright and cheery!!

By the way: I use Gimp as an editor. Photoshop is on my someday list.

Hi Julie, So fun to visit. And don’t feel bad, we did the same thing with another set of seeds. LOL 🙂 🙂 🙂 That’s the joys of the seasons – we keep getting more chances. 🙂

Hi Sheri, Thank you so much for letting me know. Your photos were SO cool! I’ve used Gimp but only for basic stuff. I may have to give it another try. Most of the time I use Picnik and it might do the same, but again, a learning curve with too little time. I’ll have to take a peek tho. It would definitely make for some fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren. 🙂

What a beautiful picture you captured ! Its something you don’t see too much anymore.

Love the photos … I bet your grandkids have been loving your garden!

Tweeting this as part of Tweet Me Tuesday!

How awesome! You know–it’s often the little things that go unnoticed but you always manage to see them and really think about them. I didn’t know that you were so interested in property investments!!

Hi Kaye! I have missed you this summer! I thought of your sunflower garden often. Sadly (or humorously!) enough, I planted all these seeds, then couldn’t remember what was what! When it was time to weed, I think I pulled the sunflowers. Oh well…next year! Love your pictures! Found you again on TMT!

Hi Peggy, Thank you 🙂 Have a blessed day.

Hi Melinda, Thanks. They have – along with bubbles, swimming, and plenty of games of TAG 🙂

Hi Kristen, 🙂 I love real estate and dealing with property investments. Which is good since many of us in the Baby Boomer Generation, caring for the elderly parents, have to deal with our own property along with helping our sweet seniors. 🙂

Glorious sunflower shots and with a fun bee! Thanks for your visit and please sell my house…I’m going after warmer!

🙂 Hi Gnee, We have good friends in Idaho – you definitely have the cooler clime – and no earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes – lot to be said for that. : But, after experiencing my first real year of snow, I can also understand. 🙂 Where are you headed? 🙂

Lovely photos ~ I love my easy to use Kodak Easyshare too.

[…] The Climbing Hydrangea Vine produces the gorgeous "fall foliage color" we both love, plus we both just plain love Hydrangeas! Not only that, she recently read an article about a retiree who has planted hundreds of these climbing hydrangeas. We're going to put one or two over by our woodpile. They should look great over there and be a delightful addition to the landscaping designs! […]
