As we daydream about future plans in the searing heat of August, and after this day last week where I posted a picture of a red barn with flowers, I stumbled across these photos...and now we love the idea of sunflowers around the barn and shed! There is something about the happy yellow flowers in contrast to the red and white barn colors that just seems so natural.
Plus, sunflowers grow well down in these parts, I believe they are heat lovers anyway. Now I just need to find the best varieties for us and how to grow them. Plus we'd get sunflower seeds to eat!
(I think? Do all varieties produce edible seeds?)
