They are beautiful and they make me happy!
You will be rewarded by chickadees and finches and other little seed grabbers I can't even think of right now. Good job.
I finally have a new camera and nothing to take pictures of. You are so fortunate to have these lovely sunflowers. Even just one would be better than just none:)
Superb! These flowers and photos are!
Two are all you need unless you're a farmer. Great shots of yellow.
they are beautiful...i love sunflowers! so bright....
So pretty! You did well. I cannot grow those dang things! I see them growing through sidewalk cracks, but putting them in my garden is apparently the death knell for them. :/
We didn't try any this years, so it was good to see yours. Thanks for.
We're going to a sunflower field tomorrow. This blog post serves as my teaser. :)
I think we have similar climates. Let me tell you how I came to have lots of sunflower and other volunteers. To try a new plant I'd like to volunteer, I buy seed cheap at the end of the season, and broadcast it in the fall where I think I'd like the volunteers. I till, mulch, plant, whatever, as usual. In the spring I hand weed those areas and hold off mulching, until the volunteers have shown up. (After the first year volunteers can appear anywhere.) Sometimes I'll move very young volunteers. I find the sunflowers sprout right around the last frost. This year I'm enjoying volunteer sunflowers, bachelor buttons, columbine, dill, cilantro, butternut squash, and tomatoes. In the fall, I clean up the garden as usual but leave some seed heads. Sometimes I collect seeds and broadcast them where I'd like new volunteers.... I'm guessing you know all this, but I like writing about gardening. I wish I had a camera, I'd show you.
There may only be two, but they're lovely!
My crop was sparce also and birds have already dined on them.Have 4 plants waiting to bloom that are suppose to be unusual.
They're so lovely. I believe that first one is smiling.
Whoa -- nice angles, nice light -- I enjoyed -- barbara
Gorgeous flowers, Tabor!
Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
