Cheer in the Fall



One of my husband`s customers in Fort McMurray, Lorne Stodola, grew this enormous sunflower this summer and it just deserved posting.  (He also has a great horseradish patch to be posted at a later date.) Is there anything so cheerful as sunflowers, especially in the autumn?


A neighbour across the street from me grows a somewhat natural garden and has an immense clump of sunflowers in the front garden.

This sunflower was grown by my mom and step-dad (pictured here).

That is some sunflower ... I'm always amazed just how tall they get sometimes! The answer to your question: No ... there is nothing sunnier or more cheery than a sunflower.

Your neighbour's sunflower patch is so lovely as well!

Thanks for dropping by to visit my Friday Flower Flaunt post. You asked about the Wrightia with those fabulous starry white flowers ... it's a semi-deciduous perennial shrub and will get to around one and half to two metres tall. Mine is potted and is around one metre at the moment. It's a fantastic shrub.

Wow! Such tall sunflowers! Perhaps they grow big and tall in places with cool weather. Lovely sunflower. I really should be growing them.

Sunflowers are definitely cheery and have never yet met anyone who doesn't love them.
