One of the happiest flowers is the Sunflower.
It’s like a ray of sunshine whenever you see a beautiful
arrangement filled with sunflowers. They are popular
certainly in the summer and remain that way into the fall season.
Hello Dear Readers!
Hope you are enjoying the final weeks of summer.
I really do not like to “rush” through a season;
however, I can really do without this awful heat!
Did you know that 2021 is The Year of the Sunflower?
Yes, designated by the National Garden Bureau.
Welcome to Monday Morning Blooms!
Can you guess what our common theme is today?!
Yes, the wonderful Sunflower!
Join me and my wonderful flower loving friends
Lidy, Mary, and Pam, for some great Sunflower
inspiration today. The links to their posts
are below their ever so beautiful images
at the bottom of this post.
I purchased this pretty vintage toleware
planter a couple of years ago from the
cutest garden shop in Knoxville, Tennessee,
“Sweet Pea” Among wonderful plants and
gorgeous topiaries, there are gifts and antiques.
There are pretty designs on both sides
of the planter. A blue and white planter
with yellow flowers on one side and
red flowers on the other.
An orchid was previously in this planter
in the sunroom.
A table set for two and we are eating
dessert. Found some sunflower cookies at Wegmans!
MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check on Lenox Butler’s Pantry.
Sunflower design napkins placed in the goblets.
I took 4 napkins and placed them on the table
for my “tablecloth square”.
The flowers used today are:
Golden yellow Stock Roses
Mini yellow mums
The Sunflower (Helianthus) blooms from mid summer
to early Fall.
Sunflowers are heliotropic…which means
that they turn to follow the movement
of the sun from east to west.
Planting time for sunflowers are
after the last frost usually in mid April.
Did you know that sunflowers thrive in all 50 States?!!
They are such a delightful flower!
And speaking of delightful…it’s time to
visit my Bloom friends.
