A big sunflower

Margaret planted some sunflower seeds in the garden earlier this year, and the first has now fully opened. We took a few photos over the last few days as it opened, and showing how tall it is (and how much more it grew in about four days!) …

Those last two photos are yesterday and today; I expect the flower will keep changing over the next week …

2-1/2 years of change

When we purchased our home at Stanton, of course I took lots of photos and one was of the front including the garden …

Yesterday I took a photo from just about the same position, to give a comparison of how the front garden has changed:

The trees have grown a lot; the agave plants came from a neighbor that didn’t like them. The biggest changes are to the left of the palm where Margaret has done loads of planting; a bit hard to see from this angle.
