    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...

    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 :)

    Les Champs Des Tournesol (french For "fields Of Sunflowers")

    My love of sunflowers started many years ago; ironically not in my home country where we can find many fields of sunflowers but in France. I remember riding on the TJV (180 mile/hr rapid train; it was relatively new in 1997) and I saw these very yellow fields. I asked a...

    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...

    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!
