I have a passion for sunflowers. I love to watch them growing out my window as big as dinner plates.
Amber adored them and so they are very special to me. The bees are loving them too!
The first ones Amber grew were planted in a whiskey barrel that we purchased from Lowe's. It was easy for her to plant seeds from the wheelchair. We loved watching them sprout and grow into beautiful huge yellow flowers! Love seeing the seeds and all their beauty so perfectly lined up. One of God's creations :)
Huge bees on them as I took the photos.
They are finally growing in height and the flowers are not quite as big this year probably due to the lack of rain. Now that we have had rain the smaller ones should grow and reach toward the sky
I had to include a zinnia or as some people call them oldmaids. Most of mine are all purple for some strange reason :)
This purple crepe myrtle in our back yard is filled with gorgeous blooms.
We have had lots of rain in our area finally! The flowers are coming back to life. I don't care how much I water there is nothing like rain water for plants. My grass is turning green again and the veggie garden is producing all kinds of goods. I made homemade vegetable soup this week and it was yummy!
I have been busy around my house trying to clean and sew before we begin our sunporch project. I can't wait to have all the windows installed and get this project going and finished so I can decorate it!
Thanks for visiting!
