Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
Suddenly we are mid-July, and it seems like so many flowers are everywhere, each one more wonderful than the least one!
If you were to look at my photo app, I’m 💯 percent sure that the flowers outnumber the people pictures! And I do take a lot of people too! I just happen to love flowers!
Whatever happens to grow currently.
My kale is booming.
My sunflowers have popped open. They’re a small but mighty patch. 🌻. What they lack in size and number, they make up in color.
I have to refrain from spamming everyone everyday with sunflowers. If you look at some of my past posts, you can see some of them. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see many more pics of what we have blooming and growing. It’s easier for me to upload photos there than here–maybe because of our connection.
I’m amazed every day at the color explosion that a garden provides.
I hope you are also finding joy in the beauties of the garden! What’s here today may not be found tomorrow, so stop while you can and smell for flowers and taste the tomatoes!
Now on to the Hop
Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more!

I can relate. Even though our own garden is small and uneventful, I enjoy the abundance of flowers in the neighborhood and the bright sunflower fields outside our town. It’s amazing how in the course of a few month nature goes from zero to a million, right?
I’m almost sad thinking of what we have now and in a few months, it’ll be dark and gray again! Then what will I write about?
It’s such a short season! I can’t get enough of the summer beauty!
Same here! Soak it in!!
Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Thank you for faithfully coming by!
I would love to have a garden. I’ve tried so many times and no matter what I do the animals eat everything. One year I had 20 tomato plants with a fence around them and only got 3 tomatoes. So sad. They even eat our rose bushes – flowers, leaves, everything but the thorns. Thanks for hosting the party!
Goodness! That’s so frustrating!
I have to admit, the raccoons are getting our corn before it’s ripe and something is getting our sweet potato leaves. Seems like we really have to shell out a lot of money to just grow food! Crazy for sure!
It’s so nice that you do a blog hop. I love the pictures you post. What an unique and beautiful sunflower.
We grew a lot off hose last year and I saved tons of seeds. I planted them this year and am waiting to see if they bloom the same.
Thank you so much for hosting. When we first moved her I planted so many perennials and I am so glad I did because no matter how active I am in the garden I still get flowers every year and I do so love the colors.
Me too! Seems I can never get enough, they’re all so wonderful!!
I enjoyed seeing your lovely flowers and it reminded me to download a photo I took on my walk this morning. Thanks for hosting Laurie and I’m enjoying your IG feed as well! 🙂
Thank you so much!
I’m trying to keep up. I never know what to focus on. Usually it’s just everyday tasks. I’m trying to find a balance. I love that you love the stories of little Charlie!
