I love sunflowers. I mean love them!!!! Every winter I look through all the seed catalogs and order the ones that sound exciting. Just listen to the names:
Earthwalker, Sole D' Oro, Giant Gray Stripe, Velvet Queen, Bashful, Moulin Rouge, and Apricot Twist......
My biggest problem is finding room to plant them all as I have a shady backyard so they all have to go in the front of my house. So when I tell people where I live, they go "oh, your the house with all the sunflowers!".
Some years they grow better than others. I often thought about making a quilt filled with sunflowers. Maybe this will be the summer for that. In the meantime, here's some sunflowers for you to enjoy.
