Mailbox Monday


Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

No sunflowers in the garden this summer, so I will enjoy my photo of this beauty that sprouted up in front of my mailbox a few years ago.

Hope everyone had a good week. Tell us about your new books by adding your Mailbox Monday post to the linky below:

Be sure to stop back later this week for Books That Caught Our Eye.

    • That must have been beautiful. My sunflowers usually come up on their own from seeds from the bird feeders, so I have a few scattered here and there. Not sure what happened to them this year.

      • Maybe the birds were more thorough this year with eating the seeds or they got carried off to other places? I don’t have sunflowers here at the new house yet, but there’s always next year.

      • A lot of times it’s the squirrels getting into the feeder and taking the seeds and burying them. I have had polite squirrels the part few years, and they are not even trying to climb the feeders.

  1. That is neat that the lovely sunflower was your own growth! Glad you shared that tidbit. We’ve had strange looking plants grow under the bird feeders but no sunflowers.

    • And that’s my huge mailbox, which the postman is thankful for! He can fit books and other packages in it without needing to come to the porch. I live on what was once a quiet two lane county road, and now, thanks to development, is a busy four lane road. But the post office kept us as a rural delivery with boxes on the street.

      The strange plants under the feeder are probably millet and other seeds in the mix. I get those too. One of these days I might try and identify them.
