    Golden Sunshine

    A few years ago, I planted on my garden beds over a dozen seeds of sun flowers. Over half of them, after 2 weeks of germination were chewed on from my squirrel. Over the whole summer I protected my plants, believe it or not, with cayenne papper and it worked. As long as I kept...

    Favorite

    It took me a while to realize it, but sunflowers are my favorite flower! I knew I always liked them, but I haven't really thought about flowers in a long while. Someone had a vase full of real ones recently and I just couldn't stop looking at them. They're just too pretty :)

    Beautiful!

    Gardening is my favorite hobby. I always plant many many various types of sunflowers. They always lift my spirits and brighten my day. I am just sorry that summer is starting to come to an end. I wish I could get sunflowers in the house during the winter.

    Striking Sunflowers

    i think sunflowers have a way of bringing out the natural beauty in everything around them. they are so gorgeous, and their colors are bold but subtle at the same time. that's the great thing about nature. it's so big and lovely, but not in an in-your-face way; just in a...

    How A Love For Sunflowers Turned Into A Business Idea

    I've always loved Sunflowers. As a family, we have grown them along the front of our garden border near the road for a few years. Our children plant the seeds and nurture the young plants and then we plant them out as a family in the Spring. Every year our Sunflowers cause...

    In My Garden

    I have planted them every spring since I can remember. There is just something so simply radiant about them.  I love watching them grow in anticipation of their bloom. Then of course collecting seeds just to experience it all over again next year!
