For the Love of Sunflowers"!......

Sunday, August 16, 2009

Burlap runners, hay bales & sunflowers!.....a "classic combination"! You either "love them or not"!.....& I LOVE them!... "Sunflowers" that is!.....They are big, bright & simply amazing!....Sunflowers are not a shy, demure flower. Instead they are a proud, "look you in the eye",..... very confident bloom!.......

Martha Stewart's darling "sunflower" cupcake! realistic!.....
Sunflowers lend their "Plain Jane prettiness" to "country style" so beautifully!....Since they're so bold, they can hold their own in any rustic outdoor setting!.......And yet, short bouquets of sunflowers, "marching like soldiers" down the middle of a table, could be quite effective in a contemporary home as well!

Easy to grow & quite available at open markets & grocery stores alike, I encourage you to pick up a couple bunches!....Bring sunflower's "happy faces" into your home.... & see if they not only look charming, but make you smile as well!.....Happy August to you all!......Heidi XO

A very monochromatic corner,... brought alive by these "glorious sunflowers"!

I just love sunflowers! I have seen them around alot this summer. We planted some seeds, but they never came up. Our neighbor behind us has them....hmmmm, wonder if he planted them or somehow ours made their way over there! Interesting!

When we had our farm in NJ I used to grow the mammoth sunflowers. They are wonderful, but really aren't any sunflowers wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us.

I'm a sunflower lover too. They make me think of fall and cool weather and after 100 degree days, I'm ready for fall.
