DragonflyThis little dargonfly kept me company today. I was just stepping out of the doorway equipted with the grasstrimmer when It entered my shoulder and attached itself to my backpack.

First I thought I needed to wipe it away, but luckely I realised that it could sit there – if it would like it! So I started walking and the little fellow sat on my shoulder all the way to the sunflowerfied and during the next hours. At least 2 hours time I spent on trimming the grass and looking after the plants. But it wouldn´t go back home with me, it flew away before I needed to put on my backpack again! I wonder what it was going on in it´s little mind? Maybee it was just taking a little nap?;)

The sunflowers are growing, some are as hight as 50 cm, I had to loosen the fence around several plants. But others are quite small only 20-30 cm…I tried to make it more comportable for them by prepare grass around them, we´ll see if that helps.
I hope that the warmth that is promised the next couple of days will make them prosper!

Since the weather is so rainy and cold the sunflowers might not grow as high as I have hoped for, there is also a risk that the seeds are not for taller flowers!:(  Anyway I´m sure I´ll be able to use the project in the exhibition some way.

Hi Annelie,

The plot looks fine today, and I took some photos that I´ve just sent to your email adress (File factory link). I took quite a few, but it´s good to have choice I think!

 

Hi Dawn!

Thank you for looking after the plot, good to hear that it looks fine and thanks for the pictures!:) I´ll put up a few on the blog, it took so long time to download..on the countryside!;)

Even though the weather was very sunny and warm this week, some raindrops mostly during the night made the decision whether to water the plants not so straight forward. Finally, I decided to water them on Friday evening.
