SUNFLOWER IN FRONT YARD

Good afternoon! I was in the front yard and oh ... I burned my feet 😉 Do not walk barefoot when it is so hot. outside.  But I was able to made a few photos for my blog. Look how my sunflower is growing next to the (d)rain pipe It is a red sunflower ...  You can see a smaller one growing behind it.

IN DE VOORTUIN

Hallo. Ik was net in onze tuin en brandde bijna mijn voeten aan de stoeptegels. Niet meer op blote "kakkies" lopen dus. Ik wilde graag mijn zonnebloem showen op mijn blog. Eén van de vijf. Hij groeit lekker hard, precies naast de regenpijp. het het is een rode zonnebloem. Zo nieuwsgierig hoe mooi rood ie er uit zal zien, de bloem!



Behind the large one there's a smaller one growing. You hardly see it, I think. But below I share a photo of the stem of this sunflower. Haha, it is funny story. The stem of the sunflower was broken by a hard gust of wind. So I took a patch (right English word?) and put it around the flower stem. And although the leaves already were fading, the sunflower is alive and well now.

GEKNAKT 😞😊

Naast de grote groeit een kleinere zonnebloem. Die kun je bijna niet zien. Maar ik heb wel een foto van de steel. Daar zit een leuk verhaal aan vast. Deze zonnebloem was eigenlijk aan het doodgaan omdat z'n steel geknakt was door een harde rugwind. Ik gaf hem nog één kans en plakte een pleister heel strak om de breuk heen. Hoewel de bladeren al helemaal slap hingen... groeit hij nu weer en doet ie het heel erg goed.
