I Promised you Sunflowers didn't I?

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

And, Sunflowers you shall have! Instead of planting the common mammoth sunflowers this year I went in search of some unique heirloom varieties that were also good cut flower candidates. I started some from seed in the greenhouse in late April and the rest I sowed outdoors after the first danger of frost back in late May or early June...



Sunflowers are so easy to grow. These are Botanical Interest Drop Dead Red sunflowers! A wonderful variety of different shades of red, gold, yellow, orange and deep maroon. The Red ones look almost black in the garden when they are under cloud cover or in shade.



Just plant them in a sunny spot and watch them grow!


All of these images are available as a set of 12 note cards or up to 11x14  by special order.
Leave a comment if interested in a larger size. Go here to order your handmade note cards using Pay Pal. Leave a note to seller ( me ) indicating Sunflowers.  Or just enjoy!

Lovely flowers. They are my favorite. They always make me smile.

Could you email me the code for your farmgirl hop button? I can't figure out how to get to it. I put your Dandelion house button on my post. Thanks!

Hi Marlo,
I don't have a code for my farmgirl blog hop button. You can try to copy and paste it or save it as a jpeg and then just add it to your post when linking up... Or... the Dandelion House Button works too! Thanks!

They are all so beautiful! Somehow between heat, drought, and goats browsing in the yard, I don't have any left. Thanks for sharing yours.

Your first sunflower is unusual to me. I have never seen a fuzzy sunflower before.
