Every year I plant sunflowers (Helianthus annuus). Although it's sad that my vegetable garden is a crazy mess, sunflowers have a way to cheer me up. I don't have other nice flowers to look at and due to financial circumstances, we're unable to purchase new plants. Hopefully next year we can work on my cottage-style garden, the potager I've been longing to have. I cut a few sunflowers for our home, doing that was pleasant and peaceful. I'm sharing the beauty of my vase arrangement with you.
I planted Russian Mammoth, Evening Sun and Goldy honey Bear. They're all lovely.
Look at the sunflower bud and examine the details. We're surrounded with the miracle of God's creations everyday and I'm in awe.
They seem like they're reaching for the sky. Sunflowers are also radiant like the golden sun.
I could see why this adorable variety is called 'Goldy Honey Bear' since it's fuzzy like a cuddly teddy bear. I kind of want to hug the sunflower! :-)
Long-blooming and perfect for a vase to brighten up a room.
Sunflowers are wonderful and I'll always have a place for them in my garden.
"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.
It's what sunflowers do." -Helen Keller
