    What an assortment. :lol:
    I only see this stuff because I'm out taking care of horses so much... good thing they are here. :wink:

    This bunch was in the back run-in shed. The mother would holler every time I hauled water back there.

    This goldfinch (?) was swaying on the sunflower in the breeze--like a carnival ride.

    There is a huge area of sunflowers in Mark's garden--which got there from me feeding black oil sunflower seeds to the horses and emptying the wheelbarrow in Mark's garden. ;-)

    Thank you Karla for sharing. It gives me a taste of fall that I don't get here. I love the turkeys and the sunflowers and all of them. Who am I kidding. Your photos are great!

    Karla, I think it's wonderful the way you take the time to see so much and better yet, take the time to share it with us.
    My grandson and I grew some sunflowers and now I'm feeding them to my cockatiels.

    Isn't it great to witness such neat sights? So many people live thier lives without taking in the beauty all around them. :-D

    Beautiful pics. I'm homesick for upstate NY now! I'm from near Binghamton and my DH is from Corning and we lived in Utica for almost 20 years. Don't get me wrong, Tucson is a great place to live, but there are some things that are etched in my memory forever and you've brought them back for me. THANK YOU!

    Black oil ones are a good source of amino acids and they help a horse's coat stay shiny. BUT--they are also high in fat and calories, so since NY air seems to be highly caloric itself, :roll: I stopped feeding it to the horses. The sunflowers will last forever though.

    :D

    Thanks for your kind comments, everyone. It's always fun to share photos with an enthusiastic audience. There's nowhere else to send them--they just stay in my computer. So I appreciate the chance to share as much as you are glad to see them. :-D

    I just love your pictures!
    They make me smile!
    I had a little Oriole on the feeder the other day. Need to go house for him so he and his family can move here. I finally got some hummingbirds to visit. Didn't take long, but had to "convince them" to come more often. Had 2 feeders up and nothing. Finally went to the store and bought some fake flowers and put that around the pole and within a few hours, they were buzzing.
    I used to have a cat that visited, but the catbirds took care of that joker, now he stays away. I need to find my camera and sit outside and get some pics of the feeder, especially when the squirrel is hanging upside down and chattering at the blackbirds lol
