Sunflowers Always Make Me Smile!

Do Sunflowers make you smile? They always bring a smile to my face and that makes everything much cheerier. I planted some this year from seeds, at the shop, and they are doing really great. I used the Two Queens Sunflower Seeds by Botanical Interests. They were purchased at Pikes Nursery and the plants should grow to 5-7 feet tall when they are full grown. They are doing great and headed to be in that range of height.

This is our puppy Chloe helping me check on the garden!

Here are some more photos of our hydrangeas at the shop. I spread coffee grounds around their base last Fall and with all the rain we had, it has resulted in an abundance of gorgeous blooms! Just had to share these with you……they are my favorite Spring flower, in case you can’t tell…

If you enjoy reading as much as I do, then you will want to hear about this new book out from Susan Mallery. The title is: The Summer of Sunshine & Margot. I was able to get an advance copy by being on her review team. It was such a great feel good Summer read about two sisters and their careers paths. Packed full of romance, goodness and family dynamics. I couldn’t put it down once I started it. So I definitely recommend that this be added to your Summer reading list!

Here is Chloe and me enjoying our reading session………:)

What are you reading this Summer……I’m always looking for new authors to enjoy!

  1. I love sunflowers! I’m also growing some from seed. I’m originally from Kansas, the sunflower state. Both of my grandmothers loved sunflowers. I carried small sunflowers in my wedding bouquet. And there is a fabulous sunflower field in Lawrence, Kansas, that is worth visiting in late August. Thanks for your post. Reading it while sipping my morning coffee brought a smile to my face.


  2. Thanks for your lovely comment. I’ll have to check out the sunflower site next time I’m in Kansas. We have one here in Georgia, in the city of Cumming. I’ve never been there, but saw it on Facebook. I definitely need to check it out. Love your blog site…….very visually appealing and nicely done! I am doing the same thing……drinking my coffee and enjoying all the photos and reading. Have a great rest of your day! Lynn
