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 ..."

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

For a Sunday, become sunny with the sunflowers. S'wunderful!

Sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 16, 2014 at 4:19pm

Daniel, your Rose of Sharon seedling is very attractive:

Comment by Patricia on August 16, 2014 at 1:12pm

I didn't like sauerkraut either until I tried it done with sea salt rather than vinegar.
