Wheelie Wednesday - Sunflowers

Hi everyone.  It's me, Autumn!
Guess what?   Our already huge sunflowers are in bloom!
And so is this beautiful red-orange daylily!
And so are the coneflowers!   Mom says everything is blooming ahead of schedule and we're not going to have any flowers in bloom in the garden in August if this keeps up!
hummmmmmm, I think it's too late, mom!
The hostas are just beginning to come into bloom too!
Mom and Maggie and Mitch are hard at work organizing supplies and food lists for the barn raising. It's this weekend, ya know!  Francesca and I will be hanging out in the kitchen for the next few days just in case mom needs us to lend a paw helping her make salads and desserts!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love,
Autumn

Woohoo! The barn raising is finally here! It will be sooooo exciting! Cool Sunflowers! The Sunflower that we thought we had in a pot, on the deck, turned out to be a dark purple Petunia!

Oh wow! The Barn Raising! Always a reason for a grand pawty! We think the garden is lovely, and maybe if it cools off a bit soon, some of the flowers will last a bit longer.

Maggie and Mitch. We've thought about you SOOO much recently. We know we missed your birthday, Maggie. Please forgive us. We sure hope it was a super special day.

Today we spent a long time showing Gramma all the beautiful flowers in your garden. We looked at lots and lots of your posts, and they were big on the flat screen TV so Gramma could see them really well. We also showed her the progress on the Crump barn project, and told her all about it (and all about your dad's workshop and your mom's dollhouse!) Needless to say ... we are getting VERY excited to come see you!

Counting the days.
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY (a little bit late)
