Sunflower Sunday

 I love sunflowers and have been planting them from seed (I harvest and keep the seeds each year) for several years now. This year I had a hard time....I would plant the seeds and something (I'm guessing birds because the discarded shells were left behind) would dig them up.  I had a few volunteers grow on their own and those have started blooming. I had a few that I planted take root and those are getting big. Then I also started some in my green house and transplanted them outside in early June...those are the stragglers, but they are growing. Because of this unintentional staggering, I think I'll have a pretty steady sunflower bloom through fall. I'm kind of glad it worked out this way. 

here are the phases of this particular bloom..,

I'm linking up with  Good, Random, Fun and Garden Affair


  1. Wow your sunflowers are gorgeous. This is my first year growing them and mine are wicked looking. LOL

  2. I love seeing all the sunflowers when I am out here!

  3. I love sunflowers and yours are beautiful! I planted many this year from seed but the deer ate their tops as they grew and only one survived. It hasn't bloomed as yet--hopefully soon!

  4. Beautiful Sunflowers, Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.
