Pretty Sunflower! (Reblogged from my Green Healing Notes photo/journal)

From the Sunflower Garden

Single Black Mammoth Sunflower Bloom

“The Sunflow’r, thinking ’twas for him foul shame
To nap by daylight, strove t’ excuse the blame;
It was not sleep that made him nod, he said,
But too great weight and largeness of his head.”
~ Abraham Cowley

  1. We feed birds, and a sunflower is growing from a seed that they dropped! It’s quiet tall (though not as tall as some) and flowering.
    This morning, a female goldfinch was pecking at the flower head. My ornamental sunflowers aren’t doing as well as I had hoped.
    Great photo, as always — you have a special eye for picture taking.


    • Hi Phy! Gosh, I get confused having the same dashboard for two blogs. I need to learn how to fix the issue (a long-standing one now, but you know how it is when your brain won’t do what you wish it would) —

      Hey, I saw a little goldfinch the other day at the gardens. I haven’t seen too many this year. I also saw a bluebird on my way home! Those are so pretty. I forgot the exact name but it’s a little bird.

      We have good dirt at the Botanical Gardens, so I think everything grows so well. Also, lots of sunlight!

      I have discovered I love photography. I don’t know how much I’d enjoy a class, but I think it’s worth a try. I really enjoy it! I think taking photos of nature is fun because there isn’t any discomfort on either side. Flowers are pleased to pose! And frogs too!

      Big Hugs and Love,


    • Sue, That’s so nice that they grew for you. I don’t have enough sunlight at home, so my little ones may, just may, produce one flower this year! But boy do I get to go see Sunflower Heaven at the Botanical Gardens. I went by yesterday with my sweet dog. We were hiking so we couldn’t visit the garden, but I could see those Sunflowers up on the hill from the woods below. I ADORE them!!!
