Sunflowers Old And New


Here are some sunflower pictures, ones that I just took, and also some from a year or two ago. There are more than 60 different varieties of sunflowers, and just one can have thousands of seeds! They have such huge heads on such thin stalks, but the way they keep upright is by following the sun. Yes, they have the ability to track the sun from one end of the sky to the other. That's why you will see them drooping in the rain, they cannot find the sun. It is a good lesson for us to keep looking up and keep our eyes on The Son, so we don't lose our way. God is our light and protector.


"For the Lord God is a sun and a shield..."
Psalm 84:11


"His face was like the sun shining in all it’s brilliance."
Rev.1:16

Those are lovely. I love the verses that you have with them.

Regina said...

I think Sunflowers have to be one of my all time favorites! These are gorgeous and makes me think of what they bee must feel like flying in-between- great macros and such pretty thoughts I'm left with for tonight-

Ann said...

I love sunflowers. An inspirational flower if I ever saw one :)

Mildred said...

Pretty sunflowers and a great reminder!

From the Kitchen said...

Beautiful!! I love seeing fields of sunflowers.

As for our jacks competition, have your people call my people. = )

Best,
Bonnie

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Your pictures are so crisp I feel like I could reach out and run my fingers through the petals!

Sandra said...

so many pretty ones, and I love sunflowers as much as daisy's and they are very similar except for size. i think i will see if b Appleseed can grow them in a bucket. did not know about the following the sun but have seen our neighbors aimed different ways and hanging down, now i know why. we planted a package in the ground but the you know whats destroyed them before they could grow. God's smiley faces big time.

Fred Alton said...

Great post, Ginny. I tried sun-flowers at the cabin - but the animals eat them too quickly.

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

You have taken beautiful pics of beautiful sunflowers!

Karin said...

Such tall and stately flowers with such a joyful expression! Love them - and love their seeds. Whenever I travel is the only time I treat myself to 'spitz' as we call them. Enjoyed your post! May the Sonshine be upon you!!

Arti said...

Sunflowers are one of my favorites... These are great!!!
Loved them, also the verses are very beautiful...
Have a fabulous weekend Ginny:)

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

A sunflower in full bloom is beautiful and a field of them never ceases to amaze me.Thanks for the good lesson on following the Son.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

Girl, I had no idea the track the sun. I am smitten by your photography and the 3rd photo...WOW and DOUBLE WOW. THE colors are truly lovely.

God bless your day~!

George said...

Follow the Son. That's great advice, and you've given us some beautiful pictures.

S. Etole said...

Beautiful, Ginny ... they are an inspiration to keep looking up.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, Yes, that is a great couple of Scripture verses! I like Sunflowers. I have a few volunteers courtesy of fallen uneaten birdseed. Those are not giant ones but are tiny scraggly things. I love your pictures today! Have a wonderful day and stay cool!

Kerrie said...

Hey sweet Ginny! I had fun catching up once again with your posts as I am still having problems with blogs locking up on me. Today, I waited patiently and yours came up for me-hurray! Loved all the photos of your recent adventures. I love the wheat wreath! To answer your question, I think the Wood Stork is the only one that is bald to my knowlege. Hugs, K

Doris Sturm said...

I enjoyed your sunflower photos, Ginny, especially since I have grown quite a few of these lovely giants this year.

I did get some varieties I've never sen before, but I've been enjoying them so much...the very tall ones with the smaller heads, but a couple of dozens on each stem - shooting out in every direction and the bees and other insects have been on them non-stop.

Happy weekend :-)

Chatty Crone said...

How did you get the colors on the top sunflower? It is gorgeous!

Shanda said...

Incredible The second from the bottom looks like a painting!

Joanne said...

Ok this is officially one of my favorite posts on your blog! I love this! and the bible verse is beautiful!
Blessings, Joanne

Ann said...

you eat the sunflower seeds. Sometimes I put it in my porridge to give it the crunch.

hip-chick said...

I love that last picture. If a sunflower could be a person I would like to know that one.
My son does like CA but he misses being at home.

SquirrelQueen said...

Old or new your sunflowers are beautiful Ginny. They are one of my favorites this time of the year, I am seeing them all around town.

I planted some last summer but my little squirrel friends thought I planted them as a squirrel treat. I just let them enjoy the seeds.

DawnTreader said...

Fascinating plants, and very good pictures!

Charlotte said...

Good lessons we can learn from Sunflowers. I'm amazed every time I see them growing and blooming. Thank you for sharing.
Blessings,
Charlotte

Pamela said...

I learned some new facts about sunflowers. I don't think you can look at a sunflower and not smile. Your photographs are beautiful.
