Sadflowers

Now that it’s late summer, Abby’s sunflowers are played out. They did amazingly well considering how little attention we were able to give them. Today I am going to cut them down and feed them to the goats, so Abby can put something into the flowerbed for the fall. It’s a banquet for the boys, who like the leaves of sunflowers a lot.

I went out to photograph the sunflowers before cutting them, and found this huge, cool-looking grasshopper.
