Soleil

It's dreary and wet and cold. And we're due to stay this way for a few more days. I didn't do a Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day post this month because about all that we have blooming right now are the sunflowers. Who wants to see a post with nothing but sunflowers??? Well, today, that's EXACTLY what we want to see. We're in desperate need of sun--soleil.

If you want to see more GBBD posts for the month of September, head on over to May Dreams Garden where each month on the 15th--ehem, not the 20th--Carol hosts Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.

Nice!!! I have to say, by now, we're thinking more of sunflowers in terms of seed to feed our hungry horde of winter songbirds. But a sunny sunflower face is certainly a cheering sight as we shiver here at 40-odd degrees!

What's not to like about sunflowers? Great big cheerful blooms and if we are lucky the birds find them and entertain us as they hang nearly upside down at times trying to get to the seeds.

Thanks for joining in for bloom day. Late is better than 'not at all'!

Hi Wenches, so glad to see you on the Blotanical list, hooray! Your sunflowers are exquisite creatures, each one different and wonderful. Thanks for showing them and BTW could you send us here in TN some of that leftover rain you have no use for? ;->

Outstanding blooms! Who would ever tire of looking at sunflowers? Not me!

You can't look at a sunflower and not smile, can you? I don't have many this year mainly because I forgot to plant them (duh!) but we always have some freerange seedlings around the yard, and they just make me smile every time I see them.

The post is totally lovely, WWWenches, but I hope you get a little real sun and have blooms from other flowers, too.

We love all the different types of sunflowers like this. Last year we had a whole array of colors and sizes. This year we just didn't get any in the ground... next year!

BTW... email us about those blueberry canes from your nursery. We want to come get some soon!! :)

I'm with you gals, it's never a bad thing to look a sunflower in the face, especially once the cloudy skies arrive. Mine are all gone except for a few dwarfies, so thanks for putting your up for me to enjoy.

What a really lovely lineup of sunflowers!

Sarah Laurence said...

Gorgeous sunflowers! It is raining here so a welcome sight. I'm not so convinced about your giant earthworm above.

Sun flowers are my all time favorite! I did not plant any this last year. These go on my wish list for next year!
Best,
Philip
