Sunflowers ~Proudly Proclaiming Summer

Feb 21, 2015 by

Sunflowers are another of my favorites! They are so bright, bold and beautiful and so loyal to the sun. They are always a part of my flower bed or garden -non-negotiable! I remember driving the kids to camp a few years ago and there was a huge sunflower field stretching to the horizon. It was so beautiful against the intense blue sky. So here are some sunflowers for you to enjoy!

There is no flower on earth as delightful as the humble daisy. Daisies speak of summer and sun and beauty but have a cool fresh feel to them -they are a cool fresh breeze on a warm summer day. If you aren’t totally in love with daisies, this will definitely change your mind! I know you will enjoy this lovely daisy parade!

At this time of year summer can seem so far away. There is nothing that says summer quite like roses. I want to share these beautiful roses to help warm up your winter days just a bit. I’m sure you will enjoy these gorgeous roses!



First I will share my desktop wallpaper. I’ve had this for several months and I know I will never get tired of it! I’m not sure where I found it, perhaps at desktop nexus.

There is this gorgeous website that I stumbled upon when I was searching for roses that would be good for colder climates. This website is really beautiful and this woman named Annelie is a definite rose lover and very knowledgeable about them. You can find everything roses here and this is a picture of a part of her garden.
