Spud and Joan, That rose of sharon is a seedling that grew volunteer from a pink one. I am always planting volunteer shrubs and trees to see what happens.

Plinius that does sound good, sauerkraut with blue cheese and mushrooms. I also like it on rye bread with swiss cheese, onions, and thousand island dressing, grilled.

Joan, that structure adjacent to the sunflowers (see photo) has no name. I cobbled it up with spare wood and metal (roof). It's my "reflection spot", overlooking my garden. Maybe I should call it my smoke house, now that I bought some pipe tobacco yesterday. I haven't smoked for I don't know how long--20 years? But the urge hit me. I figured every once in awhile, at my age, it shouldn't really harm me. Hmmm.

Joan, the Rose of Sharon picture is from Daniel's blog.  

After you asked that question, I realized I should have said that, and maybe got Daniel's permission to post it here.

I also love the color and pattern.

Chris, your "sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms" sound delicious. I like each one of those flavors; I have never tried them together.

Randy, having the space to allow a huge clump of sunflowers is a real asset. Yours is so pretty and the room beside it must be a wonderful place to sit. Is it a porch? or a gazebo type structure? I am guessing they are at least 10 feet high or more.

Spud, your photo of Rose of Sharon is so pretty. Is that a plant in your garden, or in Daniel's? I will have to look into that plant to see if it will fit in my jungle. I love the color and pattern.

Yes, when I first saw the blossoms, they looked like the Washington Hawthorn blossoms of my tree. I planted mine after a trip to Ireland where Washington Hawthorns were grown as hedgerows, forming beautiful and fragrant separation of roads from fields and between fields. They are fragile trees, break easily in a wind storm and that is how mine died. Not to worry though, there are lots of sprouts running in all directions to restore your broken tree if it happens to yours. It is a lovely tree and I am glad you have one, even if it is considered a weed. Bee songs emanate from it in a lovely, constant hum.

Joan yes. A hawthorne. I was thinking, it was you who identified it.... yes? No? They are considered a weed tree. I like them for bee forage.

Daniel, did you ever find the name of the tree on your property that you described in Comment by Sentient Biped on May 9, 2013 at 9:39pm

"Any ideas as to identity of this tree?  I don't know.  It reminds me of spirea, but much bigger.  There is a row of them on a neglected area on my property.  They are near a creek that runs in ..."

Comment by Idaho Spud on Sunday

Randy, it looks like a wonderful spot to relax on a sunday, or any day.
