Flowers, Garden, Nature


I just love sunflowers. They are big and bold and beautiful. They take charge of a space and brighten it up. Insects and bees love them. The birds eat the seeds after the flowers die. They are the easiest plant to grow (at least for me).

These are so perfect they look fake, don’t they? They’re not. What’s interesting is that I didn’t even plant the seeds. They sprouted from last year’s seeds that must have been left on the ground.


Close up!

Sunflowers require almost no care whatsoever, which is great with me. If there’s a space you’re trying to fill in the yard, try sunflowers. Remember, though, they grow really tall (mine are about 5-6 feet).

About Cindy A. Johnson

I live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I love to read, work in my flower and vegetable gardens, feed and watch the birds in the yard, sit on the front porch looking at the mountains and go camping. I also like to watch wildlife, including my cats and dog (ha!). I write online articles on a variety of subjects. Check out my book reviews at: http://readerjots.wordpress.com, wonderful nature stuff at https://mynaturenotes.wordpress.com and assorted articles on interesting stuff at http://Esmeowl12.hubpages.com. My first ebook was published in January 2012: "Alphamania: An Alphabet Resource for Teachers and Parents." Check out the blog at http://alphabetletters.wordpress.com.
