Bringing a little sunshine into the home




It's been raining all day yesterday and looks like today and tomorrow too. I couldn't stop myself from buying one of my absolute favorite flowers to bring some cheerful sunshine in to the home! I just love sunflowers! Every kind of them. Those big teddy bear ones are beautiful and all the different types. I put them in my little pitcher with some lavender.(actually from my yard) Can you imagine that??? This arrangement sits in my front foyer as you walk in the door. I love them especially in the fall with orange/red berries and wheat like stalks. Such a great flower! Anyways....I hope everyone has a bright and happy day!

  1. I love sunflowers too - they are soooo cheery. Love the way you paired them with lavender. I was excited to have some growing in my garden but when they were large enough to cut - the birds beat me to it and ate all the centers. Natures birdfeeders ;)

  7. sunflowers just seem to make everyone smile, no matter what corner of the world they are in. Sorry to hear that it has been so rainy there, are you sure you aren't getting the weather mixed up with Germany's, where wet and chilly seems to be the norm more so then the exception! Give me that east coast USA weather anytime!! :-) Debby
