The sunflower head bends towards the light. We couldn't go wrong learning to do that as well. We should especially strive to learn the devotion and loyalty of a sunflower. The sunflower symbolizes warmth, joy and all things positive. Usually sunflowers are at their height in the fall, but their positive energy makes them great gift items all year round.
The multi-talented plant family known as Asters is also known as the daisy family or the sunflower family. It includes daisies and sunflowers, Black-eyed Susans and chrysanthemums, bachelor's buttons and a colorful array of asters. This article focuses on the wonderful Sunflower. It will not only include photos but also some fun home decor products.
Because I love them, I have taken a number of photos of these beautiful plants or wildflowers. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
This introductory flower photo was of an 8 ft. sunflower with a bloom of about 12 inches in diameter and was taken in my neighborhood. The seeds in the center were about 8 inches in diameter. It was stunning to see. All photos in this lens are copyrighted by Marsha Camblin, unless other credit is given, and should not be copied.
Comments - Have you ever planted sunflowers?
MBC, Sunflowers are such cheery plants. I always make space for them, including lining a long balcony patio with many many potted sunflowers.
Sunflower oil is my oil of choice, for salads, for cooking, etc.
It's always nice to meet another sunflower fan.
Polar Bears are great too. But I'm partial to the bright sunflower. Thanks for your visit.
I'm a big sunflower fan, so thank you for this. The living room started out with a sunflower theme, until the polar bears took over (as they have nearly every room in the house, to be honest...) It's a beige and cream room for starters, with a print of Van Gogh's Sunflowers on the wall and various sunflower ornaments scattered around. Our neighbors managed a 6 foot sunnie last summer and I was deadly jealous. I also prefer items cooked in sunflower oil because of the taste. My dad reckons the appeal of sunnies liies in the fact that they are bright and cheerful. He's rarely wrong in pinpointing things like that.
