I L O V E Sunflowers!
So~o~o. . .
when Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life stated she was hosting a Summer Cloche Party, I knew immediately that my entry would be a Sunflower Cloche!!!
On Crooked Creek has its very own Sunflower Patch!
"Mr. Ed" plants a variety of Sunflowers every May
...just for me!
My Christmas gift several years ago were these amazing faux wrought iron Sunflowers from Roadhouse Antiques! "Mr. Ed" places them in the Sunflower Patch while we await the anticipation of each years Sunflower crop!
At first, I thought "Mr. Ed" had mistakenly planted cabbage seeds in our Sunflower Patch!
Turns out, he was trying a few newer varieties!
Notice the band of orange circling the center of this Sunflower?
New to On Crooked Creek's Sunflower Patch this variety is well liked by the butterflies and blends well with the other varieties!!!
Identicial blooms??? Perhaps!
We are continually a m a z e d at the volunteer Sunflowers that appear in out~of~the~ordinary places in the gardens
On Crooked Creek!
Love catching the bee extracting pollen from the heads!!!
Whether towering their heads high above the privacy fence to wave to people passing by. . .
or adorning simplistic vignettes, bringing joy to "Mr. Ed" and I. . .
one thing you can always count on . . .
Until next time. . .
