Sunny Volunteers 2011

Our volunteer sunflowers are always a welcome sight!

 They just started blooming and it feels like meeting a long lost friend!

Don't you just love plants that drop seeds?

A dropped seed is a precious gift that keeps on giving.

What flora-tastic friends are you welcoming back to the garden?

I'll show you more happy volunteers soon...

  1. we have sunflowers at the pond's edge too from birdseed. gotta love them!

  2. Beautiful! I love sunflowers. There is a farm near my house that has the most beautiful sunflowers I always drive by real slow to get a good look at them. I tried growing some in my yard but it was an epic fail! I am not a very goos gardner.

  3. I'm imagining you standing in the middle of them spinning. I had to explain to my Jim what a volunteer was when a tomato plant started growing in a pot on our patio. He still talks about plants volunteering for things.

  4. oh, those are just beautiful!

  5. I envy your sunflowers...I usually have to overpay for half dead ones that last about 2 days. And then I have to sadly throw them in the trash!!

    Such pretty pictures!

  6. Love those pretty sunflowers. They would be perfect for Fresh-Cut Friday. :)

    Have a great week!

  7. When I took the girls to Home Depot and attend their monthly building activity, they built a planter. To top it all, Home Depot gave us sunflower seeds and the plants are about to bloom. I love this yellow color. It's a sunshine in my life. Thanks for sharing this at the CBPH :) And check it out, my top commenters is now working :), thanks to you.

  8. I love the cheerful collage you've created!

  9. Texwis: Must be a happy pond!

    Jennifer: Sorry your flowers didn't work-- try again. Gardening is just like anything-- takes practice and trial/error.

    Liz: I'll keep it in mind but I don't usually cut my sunflowers-- maybe I'll link up a zinnia bouquet instead.

  10. All: Thanks so much for bragging on my sunflowers!! So glad ya'll liked them!

  11. Tracy: I'm heading out for an early morning putter now and I will be sure to spin!! Yeah, volunteering plants are amusing.

    SJ: you'll have to post a photo of your sunflowers and planter. I haven't made a planter but that is a diy project that I'd like to do.

    Yay, so glad it worked-- and I'm in the top ten! Woohoo!
