This is another close-up shot of one of my mammoth sunflowers, and as you can see, the bees are busily working away. I've never been stung by a bee, thank goodness. And I don't know where these little guys come from, but once the sunflowers bloom, the bees arrive.
The tomatoes in the vegetable garden are yielding forth a great abundance. When I came home from my swim today, I ate three large tomatoes with a sprinkling of salt. Delicious.
A friend dropped by the house today and I signed my very first book! Another good friend of mine, who owns a coffee shop in town, is hosting my first book signing tomorrow afternoon, from 2 to 4. I'm excited and a little bit nervous about it, all at the same time.
This is what I mean about the sunflowers growing so heavy, they practically keel over. The stalk will remain upright, but the upper part of the stalk falls over as the sunflower grows heavy.
