August 4th, 2010

This is going to be a short post, because Mom says, that despite the fact that it is kind of early, we ought to be going to bed soon. Mom said that work ran her ragged, so she is tired. But we wanted to show you our newest find at our house!

A yellow and orange sunflower!

Mom noticed a few days ago that there were a few sunflowers in bloom in our garden. At the BearPlace, we are having a sunflower growing competition. I fear that it is probably going to be a very narrow field of contestants. It seems to be unfriendly growing conditions for sunflowers in Europe this summer. It’s winter in Australia! That seems to only leave me and Spaulding and his family at Teddy Bears' Den.

This is the tallest sunflower right now. You will have sign up for BearPlace to see the photo of how tall it is in my garden. We both hope that we will get much taller sunflowers as time progresses! Last year the were REALLY tall!

Mom wants me to tell you all that she is going to write everyone back on Friday. She has been very lax in responding to people, so we are going to sit down and email everyone on then!

Talk to you all later!

    I really like the pink one, I have never seen a pink sunflower. I see you got a trip to the garden today ;-) Like the picture of you with the sunflower too.

    I hope things get back to normal here soon so I can make a regular posting.
