To be honest, in years past I've been a sort of sunflower hater. I'm pretty sure it dates back to just after junior high. When I was in junior hight I was hard core love of the perfume Sunflowers. After eighth grade I sort of hated all things sunflowers for no apparent reason.
Flash forward around 15 years. I'm wandering around my aunt-in-laws Utah backyard and am taken aback by a glorious row of multi-colored sunflowers. Reds, pinks, whites, oranges and yellows bombard my eyes and, once again I find myself in love with sunflowers.
I've wanted to grow sunflowers for some time now but each year I miss my window to plant seeds. This year I purchased a variety pack and I got it EARLY. Think February. I started them inside and got them in the ground just as soon as I thought it prudent. I must admit, the boys and I have had quite the time watching them grow and grow and grow then finally unfurl. I can't hardly wait to see what the next one will look like. And this is just the beginning. Most of them are not open yet!
Yay for summer!
And because I felt like Joshua didn't get enough screen time in the last post, here's some more Joshy:
Gobbled those blueberries right up!
