Last Fall Sunflower

Sunflowers are my favorite. Snapped this right before last week’s freeze. Good-Bye summer and fall. I shall miss you…  The countdown begins now for April wildflowers! This photo simply makes me happy on this dreary November day!

Sunday Sunflowers

We did not plant any sunflowers this year expecting the continued drought to dry up anything we planted. Who knew we would actually have some summer rain? Had I planted sunflowers they would have been thick and bountiful! That is how it is on the farm; everything is a planting gamble! Have a few “wild” […]

Winter Sunflower

Welcome to 2013! I have been busy taking down Christmas decorations inside and out, watching all the college bowl games, cleaning out all the old holiday foods and trying to get the house whipped back into some resemblance of clean and organized. Tried to write most of my thank you’s and today had lunch with a friend where […]

Sunshine and Sunflowers

Most of you know that sunflowers bring much “sunshine” into my life. I love them. They are so simple and there are many flowers perhaps prettier, but I find the simplicity in sunflowers suit me perfectly. This spring I was not able to plant any sunflowers.  We have a huge jar full of many different varieties […]

Soothing Sunflowers

We all know how I love sunflowers. The continued drought this spring and summer has been so disappointing when it came to finding the beauty in local wildflowers. I could not even plant sunflowers this spring. I am already looking forward to the flowers of coming springs and very much hoping the drought will break […]

I Found English Sunflowers!

Spotted these English Sunflowers in a little Oxford flower market. Wow, you should have seen how excited I got upon spying them! Sunflowers in any country is a good thing. They had other lovely flowers. And more… Notice the cute little decorative worms they sold. (Click on photo to enlarge)

One More Farm Sunflower

Last week found this one lone wild sunflower next to one of our fences. It was a nice sunny day, but the wind was fierce so shooting a good shot was almost impossible. Notice how the flower petals are blowing backwards. These flowers just make me feel good! When it gets dark and dreary this winter I […]

Cowboy’s Last Sunflower

Cowboy planted all our sunflowers this year. Our sunflowers had a hard time this summer with the extreme summer heat.  This summer was really too hot and we found them very wilted more than once. Cowboy snapped this photo this week of our very last sunflower. I really love our sunflowers and already planning to add more next […]

Sunflower

Snapped this shot of a sunflower at a friend’s ranch yesterday. It has been so hot even the sunflowers have been wilting. I love sunflowers! In July I went to town one morning to grocery only to return to find that the donkeys and goats had “let” themselves into our yard. The first delicacy they went for were my sunflowers. By the […]
