This morning - sunny with bright yellow sunflowers.   first time growing  this type,  they are about two feet tall and a vivid yellow.

Forgot the name of this vine which I plant every year because it flourishes in pots and covers the
trellis so well and even better - the hummingbirds love it.

I usually pull these up every year but this year I let them ramble on the fence.   Morning Glory seeds are poisonous so I make sure the grand girls keep a distance as the little one is always putting things in her mouth.
