More Sunflowers and stuff

This was from Wednesday. Our second sunflower had opened.

Also on Wednesday, three tomatoes came inside to live with us. They're not
here any more and they were GOOD.

On Thursday, these guys were having a really great day. Probably because there
was no AC in the house. Regardless, they're thriving as are their littler brothers
in the same flowerbed.

This is the same sunflower plant as above, but I took this picture today. There are four
blooms in total on this guy and more to come. It also looks like the pollinators have
figured out a new place to land. I haven't seen any bees yet, but it's been too damn hot to
be outside for any extended period. 

Some authors like to give you pictures of various things so I'm sharing the things that we're growing here at Greengate. (That's what I've taken to calling the house. I think it has a certain ring to it.) I'm proud of the sunflowers because they're just gorgeous to watch grow and then sway in the summer breeze. 

On Monday I'll give you a proper review of The Dark Knight Rises. I'll hint right now that I think it was a fitting end to the trilogy being action-packed and emotionally satisfying despite some glitches. I liked it and will probably go again.

Have a nice weekend!
