Good morning world! I couldn't resist snapping a shot of my pride sunflower this morning in the early light. I just love the way they always face the sun, they brighten my day every time I see them! I should have put my hand up or something so you can see how large it is. It's roughly 10" in diameter... a huge one!

Here's a quick shot of my little cherry tomatoes. Of course, you know Tina couldn't resist getting in the photo too. She was kind of running past and it makes her look like she's almost glowing! Anyway, looks like one of them will be ripe in a couple of days, so I see some really tasty salads on my horizon.

Any interesting salad recipes you've tried lately??


  1. That sunflower picture is AWESOME! I can't believe how perfect it looks and the super bright yellow contrasts so beautifully with our beautiful Houston sky (hate the extreme heat, LOVE our skies). Good growing and photoing job!

  2. I love sunflowers. Thank you!!!

  3. LOVE that sunflower. we've got one in our backyard but it doesn't look nearly as amazing as yours. in fact i think it's dying... :) oh well. yours totally brightened my day.

  4. WOW This is an amazing sunflower! How did you ever grow this that big??? I agree the color, and lighting is picture perfect. This would make a lovely card. Very big WOW from me! :-)

  5. Thanks!! I just bought me a little packet of seeds and helped them along. I've had lots of emails along with the wonderful comments, so I thought I would post a link to the package I used. They are called "Mammoth" sunflowers! :)

    I buy them at Wal-Mart, but I've also seen them at Home Depot. :) It's almost as tall as I am!!
