Flower Friday: Bird Seed Sunflowers, Orange King Zinnia & Kitten

I discovered Flower Friday last year while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pictures and information. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Today’s Flower is:

Bird seed sunflowers!


My young daughter was out in the driveway waiting for me to load the bird-feeders and decided to throw some of the seed in an old pot that I hadn’t planted yet. I guess she thought the birds might visit the pot. The flowers sprouted and this is what we ended up with.


I’ve seen bird seed sprout under my bird-feeders before, but had no idea we would get these. I have no clue what type of sunflower this is, but it’s really nice having them!


Also, the one cat we didn’t get fixed last year had kittens. Here’s one below prancing around in the water…


Here’s another picture of an orange king zinnia. These are just now taking off as I planted them late. More on these later!


How’s your garden doing? Growing anything interesting this year? Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

  1. I love this post! I have had birdseed sprout, but I probably pulled it up before it could do something amazing like this! I showed my mom, and she said that she’s tried to grow something from it before and never got anything, so this is pretty awesom! I love how big it is and how many blooms you’ve gotten! I also love that zinnia! And of course the kitten! I had one years ago that looked similar! Does she have any orange? We got a St. John’s Wort flower in a pot- it has beautiful flowers – well, not now, but when we got it. I’ve fed it so hope it does something. Slowly my rose is getting its leaves back, and my mini rose has a tiny bloom. It gets eaten by rabbits and chipmunks, and I love the animals so much, I can’t get mad. Happy Friday, favorite M! 💗 xo

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! That warms my heart. Not bad for bird seed, right? My daughter was so excited 😀

      This little kitty is mainly grey and white. Her siblings have some orange though! I’m going to have to look up St. Johns Wart. That’s one I don’t have any experience with.

      I’m so glad your roses are coming back! The insects and everything have been so bad this year. It’s hard to maintain. If we could just get some rain too LOL. ❤ Chat soon, Jenn! Thank you! 😉

    1. A very happy surprise indeed! I guess it makes sense that it should sprout. It’s just so nice having something different and it was a fun experience. ❤ I'm thinking it might be nice to just have a bird seed bed next year. Might be fun! 😀


    1. This was a song bird mix so it had a lot of little black sunflower seeds in it. Some of the other seed sprouted, but didn’t do much so, it’s mainly just these little sunflowers of some sort.

      Glad you liked the little kitty! They are so much fun right now. Very active. ❤ Thanks!!

    I never associated bird seed with flowering plants. Amazing! The zinnia was one of Grandmas favorite flowers. She had them in all of her gardens. I know I’ve said this before but I believe you have her ‘green thumb’. 💕

    1. Isn’t it? We were so surprised and just laughed about it. We kept them watered to see what we would get and here we are with blooming sunflowers! So fun. I believe this must be where some of my plant interest came from. Well, and from you too of course! 🙂 ❤
