It doesn't help that the weather is still very warm. It's cooled down from daytime temperatures in the low 100's, but it's still in the 90's, which means that I'm having to spend several hours watering every afternoon/evening when I get home. I'm generally not back inside until around 8:00 every evening. That leaves only time for making dinner (such as it is) and then getting ready for bed. I comfort myself that soon the initial rush of school will be behind me and I can settle into a more comfortable routine. But I'm not there yet.

Sunflowers are one of my all-time favorite flowers and I can't imagine having a garden without them.
