Garden Tuesday–Sunflowers!


On a whim, while at the farmer’s market, I purchased 3 sunflower plants.  I figured I could squeeze them into one of my flower beds.  So I temporarily lined them up on a little edge at the back end of our driveway.  So, that as I pulled into the driveway and park (remember, I can’t get into my garage – yet), they were all lined up in a row.


But then, it turned out, they made me happy.  Every time I pulled into my parking place on the driveway, they were waiting for me, and they made me smile.  Really, is there anything more cheerful then a sunflower?

    Just looking at a sunflower makes me feel like the sun must be shining and the day is going to be good…so yeah. I totally know what you mean!

    Pam, very cheery! I can sure understand the enjoyment of something so happy when arriving home after a long day at work.

    Makes me happy too! I need to visit the Farmer’s Market and find me some plants…I tried seeds and with all the rain we’ve had they must have washed away! Yours are beautiful!

    That’s what I love about sunflowers, they do make you happy…then they make the birds and squirrels happy with the seeds!

    I agree that sunflowers make me feel happy. I used to not like them much, but over the past few years, I have come to luv them. I planted assorted sunflower seeds last week. I just hope they survive (seeds are not my strong point!)

    so true! My business card for the inn I wanted (that didn’t materialize) was a sunflower, and the name of the inn, LoveJoy, cuz that’s what you think when you see sunflowers! Love this!

    We planted sunflowers a couple of years ago but planted them too shallow. When they reached full size they fell right over. I was so sad! I’d love to try again. Sunflowers are such happy flowers. :)

    I always get a few volunteer sunflowers growing under our bird feeder and I let a couple grow to maturity. It will be July before we see any blooms.
