Wahoo!!! Summer

Okay, so I've been harassed enough. I know, I know, it's been a while. I've been working a bunch and a lot of my time has been spent on outdoor activities now that summer has finally decided to show up. We have a huge garden started. Honestly, I think we went a little overboard on the garden this year. Okay not we, mostly Brent. I hope he realizes that since he wanted a big garden he's doing most of the weeding. Also, for a little bit of fun, my sister saw this fun little idea online for a sunflower house. We planted sunflowers in a square and then when the flowers get bigger, you tie the tops together to make kind of a teepee for the kids to play in. Sounded like a fun idea, I'll let you know if it actually works. Here's the site if your interested,

Hi Haslem Family, I love reading through your blog. Isn't this blogworld wonderful? Makes you feel so connected to many people.

I wrote the book Sunflower Houses in 1991. Then in 98 wrote Roots Shoots Buckets & Boots, both have sunflower houses in them. I've received hundreds of letters and photos of the project. They are magical and children never forget summer in a natural sunflower playhouse with a roof of morning glories. Perfect.

Green blessings to you all,
