It’s a rainy day in Sardegna today. The skies are filled with grey heavy clouds, the wind barely stirs the tree tops and the animals are content with the cool showers. On days like this I crave the lemon-yellow sun, but knowing she won’t make a grand entrance, I’m content watching my babies grow. I planted them on March 21st, 2011 and finally, they have flowered. Besides my three beautiful young nieces, there is nothing more pleasing than these beauties.
I haven’t the greenest thumb in the book, this I have learned from experience. Every house plant I have received as a gift is dying or is dead. I scour the internet for advice on how to keep my plants alive and tend to these words. But alas, they always fail me. The only thing I can grow and grow good are these stunning sunflowers. They have never failed me.
I am the Sunflower Queen.
Long live the Queen!
They are lovely! I think I might try and grow some – do they grow in pots? Looks like your are on a balcony, so I’m guessing they will?
Yes, I have them growing in a pot as we don’t have a garden around our house. My balcony is the garden 😉 . You will need a large pot, depending on how many seeds you use. They grow tall and big, and the roots need the extra room.
I love sunflowers. They are such huge and friendly flowers!!!! ANd good for you!!! I always have killed sunflowers while everything else prospers and fruits.
stunning. Very beautifull. I didnt grow any this year. Except one that fell from my bird feeder and sprouted. Its only an inch high though.
