Some great #fasciation on this #sunflower this #bee doesn't seem to mind either way😊 yesterday's frost took out a bunch of plants but a few were spared with some damage, hope they keep going so I can get a few more critter pics..

So unusual the creations created by fasciation! Is it smoky there Tina? We have poor air quality warnings here now and our winds are coming from the southeast!

We were able to see some of the effects of the fires last week with very hazy skies but right now u can't tell @gjones isn't it crazy that something so far away impacts us as well, we're all connected in one way or another ☺

We had the oddest looking sunrise this morning. The sun rose a brilliant red ball and the sky around it was grey! We tried to get a photo of it but our camera doesn’t pick up reds very good.

That's funny u say that cuz I tried last week at a sunset and the camera just would not see it as my eyes did! @gjones

The smoke from our bush fires last summer went to New Zealand and the pacific islands close by.

Frustrating isn’t it! We knew it was coming but so many flowers are still looking great. How cold did it get there?

Anyone who takes poop to the head, deserves something good in return! Otherwise, that's just not right lol

@veepaisal got your address but it will probably be a while before the seeds are dry and cured. Couple of months or so.

Thank you again Tina, no rush! I'm also drying out the ones we have here. Gonna look so purrttyy next summer! How do you cure the seeds??? I leave the ones I have from the current sunflowers on a tray to dry them out and then leave them in paper bags @tinaaune
