Thank you everyone! It was a choice between the mother-in-law or the sunflower, so I shot the sunflower; probably the wise choice. Saves having to plant more sunflowers in the "new" garden area (grin). #668164

Wow, thanks Mary! I don't know that it was "thought out past thinking "hey, it might look cool if I moved it to the right a bit and block out the sun." lol #764947
