Kim I enjoy your blog but this is truly a lovely visual one. The pics are amazing and the knitting is well, as Margene said, fabulous!


Ahh, I love the sunflowers! Where's the quote???? I enjoy those. I'm quite the quote collector, and I do look forward to yours!


wow, those sunflowers are gorgeous; a great color! and the bee blob; i'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see it blocked out! please send me some nice photos when it's done!


The sunflower looks like a lady peeking over a fan at the camera (: A sultry flower. Love it! I wish I was the bee laying in it. love ya Mom -ash


Great photo! We had gads of bees at the raspberries this year but I discounted them as honey bees bc their bodies were more black that yellow stripes. Your post got me thinking and I did a little reading and found this "Although the body color of honey bees varies between species and some honey bees have predominantly black bodies, almost all honey bees have varying dark-to-light striations." Learn something(hopefully many things) every day.

Sunflowers, bees and yarn. How can life be so perfect?


That is a lovely color, and well named for a sunflower. I stopped planting them because the squirrels destroyed them routinely.

You are far wiser to be sticking to one project. Monogamy actually gets knitting results.


Bee Blob is coming along nicely.

OMG! That is one beauty of a sunflower! I'll plant mine for sure next year. I think I still could have planted them when we got here. We've seldom been out of the triple digits. Supposed to get way down to 91 tomorrow!! lol. I did plant a little garden. The only thing that's really taking is the basil, cukes (it's going nuts) and Meyer Lemon tree. I think it was just too hot for the tomatoes. I need to do one sowing in the Spring and just start them in July I think.


I love sunflowers! I had a volunteer one sprout on the edge of the lawn thanks to a chipmunk. Lived long enough to flower and then a deer knocked it over chewing the lower leaves. I brought it in a put in a vase. It seemed to attract more of the small beneficial bees. Next year I'll plant a bunch of the Lemon Queens. It would make a great colorway- at least the center of it.


Gorgeous sun flowers and knitting.

I was talking to a bee farmer recently, he said between disease in the hives and cell phone signals disorienting the bees, they're being wiped out in our area.

I prefer fall weather too, it's my favourite time of the year. :)


there's nothing quite so lovely as a field of sunflowers ;-)
I wish you lived closer.. I have a nest of mason bees right beside my front door, and wish I had someone to come and relocate them for me. I just cannot bring myself to harm them, no matter how deathly allergic I am.

Can't wait to see the shawl!


Gorgeous sunflower photo....I will have to try them again next year. Last year the squirrels got them! Lovely shawl, too.

I'm done with the heat, all four days of it! Ready to plant some fall-winter garden beds as soon as my seed order arrives.

That is an extremely pretty bee blob.


Kim- No, I'm with you. Give me cooler weather every time.

The sunflowers are beautiful.


Sounds like a great plant for all gardeners. 34F here this morning. Colder tonight. Brrr....!

What a spectacular photo! You should enter it in a photo contest.


That sunflower picture is fantastic! I would be interested in planting some of these sunflowers, too. Want to order the seeds together?
And I love the weather here today. Sunny and warm with no humidity. Hooray!


The sunflower is so beautiful and how wonderful it attracts so many bees. Your garden looks as if it survived the wet and will held a nice harvest for fall. The bee blob will be fabulous!
