More from Last Weekend

This is usually the time of year that the goldfinches are going crazy.  The sunflowers and cone flowers are going to seed and these little guys are going nuts.  I wish I could capture them on video because sometimes there are 6 or 7 at a time swarming around the flowers and it looks pretty cool.. 
Elsewhere in the yard, we have our first Rose of Sharon bloom.  I picked these seeds from my mom's plants a few years ago, at Christmas and they've finally matured on their own.  So far, I have some white ones.  I hope to have some purple also.   
Finally, over the weekend, I was able to get the second side of the garage painted.  The mosaic work is lagging but I have a little time before the snow starts to fly.
