A row of Teddy Bear Sunflowers has been added behind the black eyed susans. And now I've got Elvis in my head, singing, "your teddy bear." Update 5.9.16, no sign of sprouting yet. HMMM. 5.28.16 VERY slow to germinate and sporadic at best. they better be good.

We've seen dogs, chickens and even penguins in sweaters, but these 3 newborn goats reach the ultimate level of cuteness. Born just a few days ago, the Nigerian Dwarf goat triplet received tiny custom-knit sweaters to keep them warm at the Sunflower Farm in Maine.

Dwarf Sunflowers.....I am in love. I planted these in three different types of pots. Small singular pot, larger plastic pot, and one of my burlap bag pot. Did great in all of them. Cutest in the Burlap bag though. I grew them from seed, something I played with a little more this year, and it worked out great. Definitely something for next year!
