SUMMER'S FIRST SUNFLOWER!

Ja, opeens zag ik mijn eerste zonnebloem. Wat is ie mooi! De zonnebloemen die ik gezaaid heb doen het niet zo goed. Deze groeit uit de zaadjes die de zonnebloem van vorig jaar heeft laten vallen.

IN MY GARDEN

My first sunflower has arrived. I love this first, yellow flower. 

During growth, sunflowers tilt during the day to face the sun but stop once they begin blooming. This tracking of the sun in young sunflower heads is called heliotropism. By the time they are mature, sunflowers generally face east. (Wikipedia)



Heb jij al zonnebloemen gezien?
Have you already seen sunflowers in your area?

  1. Sunflowers are such a cheerful flower. I've always loved them. One time I saw a field of them wilting and drooping from the Summer heat, and they were still beautiful. Your first yellow flower is just right. : )

  3. Sunflowers are the happiest of flowers! Always cheerful, despite our deep South heat. Yours is perfectly formed and has beautifully vivid colors. Great inspiration for a quilt, don't you think?

  7. I don't recall having seen any yet, but perhaps I have not looked well enough. It is in any event not widely grown here.

  9. Je zonnebloem is schitterend zoals ie daar staat te pronken! Misschien is zo'n spontaan exemplaar wel sterker dan die van zaad uit een zakje. Ik heb al twee jaar zonnebloemen gezaaid in bakjes en uitgepoot en tenslotte in de grond... En toen aten de slakken ze op ...
    Maar ik blijf ze prachtig vinden. Ze zingen dat het zomer is!
