Sunflower Days



A cheerfull Sunflower at the RHS Harlow Carr herb garden. I love growing these, and a sunny day sets them off.

Childhood memories are made of these plants and bright yellow flowers. The birds love the seeds they produce too.One flower can give you hundreds of seeds within the centre.

I have finished my night shifts for this set anyway.I have a week off to recharge my batterys, study my course book, and go plant shopping with Fran. Its September, the tail end of Summer. Nows the time to buy your spring bulbs and get them planted in borders and pots.

Dafffodils, Narcissus, Crocus, Tulips, Blubells, and Snowdrops...Old friends who will appear after the Cold, dark Winter days. They are the messengers of a new year, of a new cycle of Seasons.

I will help Fran make her Garden ready for Spring...I hope the new year brings me a new house and Garden.
