Happy GBBD from our garden in Houston, Texas.
As the saying goes, if God gives you lemons, make lemonade.
And if He gives you sunshine (after 30 years of gardening in the shade), then grow
I always grow the standard Mammoth sunflowers, but actually LOVE the smaller, colorful sunflowers more.
Someone else also loves these colorful sunflowers. See?
These are from the Burpee "Evening Sun Mix".
The package shows 5 different colors and patterns of deep reds and bright yellows.
Here's good old Mammoth. It always cheers me up even on the gloomiest day.
And here's one of our many-headed native sunflowers that grow along the Texas roadsides.
One managed to make it into my garden. So cool!
We have about 10 more that will be blooming next week.
Anyone else out there like sunflowers?
That's it for this GBBD. I have many other flowers, but they can wait until next time.
Hop on over to May Dreams Gardens for more flowering fun.
She's our gracious hostess each month.
