Stain and Odor Eliminator

Whew, another busy week for me.  I absolutely  find it hard to find time to sit down and blog these days.  I was planning on writing some reviews yesterday but I ended up doing laundry and canning tomatoes before we did our  first family fitness walk  race over at Marland Heights.  Today, my husband asked me to go with them in Pittsburgh but I told them that I have so many things to do here at home.  So I stayed and cleaned our  carpet instead.  
 I have this Rocco and Roxie Supply Company's Stain and Odor Eliminator from Chewy.com.  As you may know, we have  two  dogs and used to have two rabbits that we take inside our house during winter times.  I am so glad that  has professional strength  to completely removed pet urine in the carpet.  
Chewy.com  truly knows how to package products to avoid  being damaged  during the shipping process.  I love that the the bottle  is still sealed.  So when you order this online, you don't have to worry about  leaks.
This  stain and odor eliminator  has natural bio-enzymatic formula that permanently eliminates  pet urine odor.  We now have  a guinea pig which my kids truly adore but whenever they take him out of his cage and let him run around the carpet, he sometimes pee in the carpet which  makes me  unhappy.
I am so glad to have this because it doesn't only works in carpet but it also works great on upholstery.  The best thing that I love is that it is safe to use around  kids and pets.  I tried it first at  the corner side of our dining room  where our rabbit keft us a remembrance of his existence there.  That   got cleaned so well and it did not  change the color of the carpet.
So glad,  was able to do my  cleaning today because I can  sleep in tomorrow, whew.  This product really works in cleaning our  carpet and eliminating the pet odor so I would recommend this to those with pets at home.

Update, the kids spilled some  coloring  paint  in the living room so I cleaned it today and it turned out  spot clean.

Sunflower

I used to have  big sun flowers in the front of my house and the yellow birds love them.  I dunno what haoppen but one year,  nothing came back anymore so I did not bother planting again.  This year, I got one which I did not plant.  I guess a burd drop a seed in my garden and  it grew.  It's not the typical  sunflower that I used to grow (mammoth kind) but I was glad I got one as it might be a start again for many more next year.  
I thought it will only have one  flower but I was surprise that there are multiple small flowers that grew agter the  big one.
 I read something about it onlune that it might be cause by a larvae infestation that's why instead of getting a big one, you get multiple small flowers.  I guess they are right with the infestation because  something is earing the petalsd of the sunflower.
 I tookk these shots when it opens up a couple of days.
I will save some seeds if the  buirds t does not eat them all.
