Ground hog day - early spring

I've been in a bad mood for three days and still feel crabby today so I decided to post a blog about sun flowers which are very beautiful and sunny and make me feel good when I look at them. Last year we grew sunflowers from seeds that we saved from our sunflowers from the year before. They where about 15 feet tall and the stalks were 2" in diameter. They were magnificent. The top photo may look upside down but that is what the flower looked like when I stood under neath it to take the photo. The heads on that type where well over 1 foot across. The bees loved them.

Speaking of bees, the almond tree is in bloom right now and I am happy to report that there were bee's all over it yesterday.


  1. Martha, were these sunflowers larger and stronger than the original ones that the seed came from? I love sunflowers too.

  2. Yes actually they were - not sure if it is because they were in better soil
