My Sunflowers

Three days without internet,
One day with no phone (thanks OTE!) grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
two sick children,
no electric for a whole afternoon,
gloomy, rainy weather...

I'm glad that I remembered to plant sunflowers.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do. --Helen Keller

  1. Fabulous sunflowers! Who is taking care of them?

  2. I love sunflowers; they're so happy and unique. I gave one to a friend visiting from Canada, and the room looked cheerful somehow.

  3. ooh, they look lovely! i planted red sunflowers this year. they did ok, but don't stand up on their own so they are all lying across the walk by the garage.

  4. Phivos,

    I was all summer, but at this point...Mother Nature!:)


    I totally agree with you in thinking that sunflowers are "happy & unique". I think that they are too & that's why I made sure to plants some this year because they were missing last year. They always cheer me up.
    It was so sweet of you to have a sunflower in your friend's room!


    Would you believe me if I said that it got worse?!!! Yes. But, I still have my sunflowers:)


    Thank you~~
    I picked up the seeds when I was in town. I also picked up seeds for the orange/red ones but didn't plant them. I surpised that they didn't stand up near the garage. I know that you're happy to just have them. :) xoxo

  5. I love sunflowers!!! I also love those pictures you took, they are beautiful!!!

  6. Christie,
    Thank you chica~~~~!

  7. I loved the vast fields of sunflowers in Italy. It's a beautiful sight and you can practically watch them turn their heads to face the sun.

  8. Biddy,
    If there's one place that I have to visit soon, it's Italy. I'd love to see sunflowers in Italy!!
    Next year, I'm planting more...they are so beautiful.
