Now Thats a Big Sunflower

filed under: Miscellaneous on August 14, 2011

I couldn’t resist sharing a few pictures from our weekend.


My niece Inga came to visit.

Her and her mom (my sister) and her grandma (my mom) came to the cities for a girls/birthday/school shopping weekend.

They came over a bit later and we made red velvet cupcakes and let the kids decorate them any way they wanted.


Then I decorated one just the way I wanted.  And then looked at it.

Cause I am trying not to eat gluten.

And those were not gluten free.

The only thing they were free of was healthiness.


Dear sister posing with the sunflowers that run the edge of our garden.  She wears fun colors.

I sometimes try to liven up my black wardrobe with a splash of white.

I am a rebel.

Seriously though, our sunflowers are huge.  At least 15 feet tall.

Not sure why.

But I like lookin at em.

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

    When my sisters were visiting here two weeks ago, one of them went into the giant grasses that grow in the front of our property and I took a picture of her in the midst of them. This pic of your sister by your giant sunflowers is wonderful, made me think of our sister gathering…we do it when we can, but it’s never enough is it?

    Those sunflowers are HUGE! I’ve never had them grow that big before. Ever! I’ve also wanted to try a gluten free diet. Is it really hard to get used to?

  • Brooke says:

    I’m not very good at wearing colors… It’s just not me. Color-phobia, that’s what I call it.
    I’m jealous of your sunflowers! Beautiful.

  • Bethany says:

    Wowswers. I love sunflowers, but the squirrels eat them around here before they really have a chance to bloom out. Do you keep all the seeds? The kids have always wanted to but no luck so far.

  • Anna says:

    Sunflowers are my favorite flower in the entire world. Yours are beautiful!
    We travelled from Maryland to Memphis, TN, where we’re currently enjoying a couple of days siteseeing. We’re leaving tomorrow for the second leg of our trip … Texas!

    I like to wear pink or blue. I am a walking baby gender mama. You will have a girl if I wear pink on this day or you will have a boy if I wear blue on this day.
    Okay, that comment was stupid, but I’m still gonna leave it! That’s how much I love you!

    LOL, I dress like you. You are SOOOOOOOOOOOO lucky to live in a place that sunflowers almost reach heaven, and things grow because it rains. I’m ready for fall and ready for spring again. I love your back yard!
