Lemon Queen

Volunteer Sunflower

In 2019 we had three volunteer sunflowers show up; two I shared last week. Here’s the third, which appears to be a lemon queen.

This volunteer sunflower is one of the tallest sunflowers we’ve ever had, and it’s the healthiest. It stands alone out in our pasture about fifteen feet away from the one I shared last week.

Volunteer Sunflowers

In 2019 we’ve had three volunteer sunflowers show up. This sunflower here started right next to the house in a shaded area.

What a beauty it was. It bloomed early on in July and grew to be about four feet tall. This one was fairly short-lived unfortunately.

Flower Friday: Slideshow ~ Sunflowers – Zinnias – First Tomatoes

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!


The zinnias and sunflowers are blooming like crazy. Not only that, I was able to can a few jars of tomatoes already which is nice. This year we grew a few different types of tomatoes like Ukrainian yellow and galaxy. I thought for today I’d share a short slideshow of some of my favorite pictures this week, including a few butterflies in the greenhouse. I also added in a song I enjoyed this week by Arborea titled “Wayfaring Summer”. Hope you all enjoy!

It’s near the end of January and although it’s fairly nice out today, winter isn’t over yet. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m ready for spring! I’m really looking forward to the upcoming growing season. I’ve been looking through some of my pictures of the gardens and found a few lovely sunflower pictures from our sunflower gardens to share. I thought I’d share a few today for Flower Friday.

I love growing all different kinds of sunflowers. Many of these are aliens and have just cross pollinated over and over again. You never know what you’re going to get when saving the seed!

These were taken with my phone and aren’t the greatest pictures, but you can see how well these grew. It’s like Christmas in July with all the blooms.

I’m really looking forward to it. It’s a new season with new seed, a new camera, and a new attitude!
