Week of Flowers 2021 – Day Five

HelianthusI’m joining Cathy at Words and Herbs blog for her second annual Week of Flowers, where we share daily posts of flowers and gardens to give a dose of cheer to those in northern climes, where the short days this time of year are often dark and dreary. It does my heart good to look back to the green and flowery profusion of the summer months. Open to all, feel free to join in by clicking the link above, or simply to see links to what others are sharing.

    Simply super – so dark and miserable here. I needed that!

    As I read this the sun came through the morning mist! Not sure it will stick around, so your sunflower is a nice alternative. 😃 Thanks Eliza.

    It is still dark here and looking at this cheerful flower is like looking at a beautiful sunrise. 🙂

    I only managed one sunflower this year that I grew from seed – all the rest got eaten by the S&S I imagine. And it only managed to flower in September! I shall try again next year and hope to do better.

  10. Sunny reflections, perfect for today, even gloomy here. Overcast and raining.

    Busy bees! I’m already looking forward to next year’s sunflowers. I received 4 packets of seeds by mail just yesterday 😉

    What a great idea! It’s so much fun seeing floral beauty again, now that Mother Nature has dressed herself in drab!

    Sixteen more days and the days will start getting longer again, then won’t spring flowers be next?

  20. Eliza, I’m smitten with all those bees on your over-the-top sunflower. Thanks for sharing this slice of summer cheer.

  21. I can hear them buzzing! Beautiful, vivid colors!

    It’s a wonder the bees don’t get dizzy navigating that mesmerizing center. Lovely photo Eiliza.
