I was certainly cutting it close on today’s post. Currently, I’m cleaning up a giant mess of a flooded basement. Since I’ve got a lot of mopping to do, I thought I would show you some of the last sunflowers that were picked. I planted the seeds rather late, around August 10th – and they certainly were racing the clock! Luckily, some of them did make it before the frost. I hope you enjoy! I’ll be back tomorrow in full swing, ready to finish Blog-tober!

Thanks so much! I don’t quite know what to do now that winter is here! Lol.
ahhh well… I’m sure some creative idea will grow on you 😉 Winter around here will keep us busy shovelling snow! :-/ ♥ <3
Sunflowers have appeared on our property randomly. I have not planted them nor have I encouraged them. But when they appear, I also do not I hinder them. I call then volunteers to my ecosystem.
This year I had dozens of sunflower volunteers that brightened my day.
Volunteers are the best! Some people transplant them, but I just let them be – which would explain why I have amaranth growing in the middle of almost every flower bed I have, LOL.
I love those dark sunflowers! My favourite variety to grow was Moulin Rouge. What is that one?
I love sunflowers so much! They’re ProCut Red. I really like the entire ProCut series 🙂
What is the second photo of??? It looks a bit like an artichoke but I know it isn’t. Intriguing.
The zinnias and sunflowers look wonderful together…
