Wow! Those Pink Double Delights sure are pink.

What a lovely sunflower you have there. I drive by a house every work day on my way home. I rarely notice it. Then once day I saw about about 8-10 sunflowers as tall as me and in bloom. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how I'd missed them before they bloomed. I mean, heck, they were still tall plants growing next to the street.

Jenna: Stalks of some sunflowers are uber tall and go unnoticed, I know. But once that bright yellow bloom comes on...Yowzah!

Great pictures again Vickie, I love those rescued plants, and that very flower.

Aurian: Thank you! We love going to Lowes (hardware store chain) and heading back to the racks of distressed plants. They need love, too.

Mickie: *grin* Thanks!
