sunny side up

 Well we are on vacation, but  I have managed to get a few things ready so it shouldn't be too lonesome around here. I thought I would post about some of my favorite summer indulgences.


Sunny sunflowers. I love them. Even though peonies and cabbage roses are my favorites, followed by hydrangeas and daisies, there is just something about sunflowers spread all around the house that just brings the summer inside.

I especially love the variety that is more yellow than black in the middle. They are softer somehow.

One of these days I am going to grow my own. But for now the Farmers Market and the grocery store variety will have to do.

Okay, I showed you mine, now you show me yours; What's your favorite summer flower?


  1. The wild Chicory that glows brilliant blue on the side of the lanes in July.

  2. i have to agree that sunflowers are one of my favorite summer flowers too! i want to grow my own as well sometime...
    Enjoy your vacation!
