    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.

    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!

    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...

    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 :)
