Photo Description
This is a garden photo, yet a thrifty photo at the same time.:) I took my son to a local free carnival recently. Free food, free games, crafts, etc....a frugal paradise! They had a free "planting station" where the children could choose a seed and plant it themselves.
This tiny seed started in a humble Dixie cup, migrated to a broken plastic pot, and my son took painstakingly good care of his flower, until he decided to find his Daddy's shovel and transplant it in the the yard.

This is the beautiful result. It is now taller than he is! In my mind, this is just another example of finding joy and beauty in each day "without" opening your wallet.

Even though I entered this contest myself, I voted for your photo! I loved the story, and kids are so full of wonder! I see that you had more votes than the winner, which I do not understand. Kudos for a great share!

Photo Description
This has been a strange and wonderful year for plants on our property. This lovely sunflower bloomed at our lamp post then continued to grow into this grand specimen that greets us at our back door every day. It was even more beautiful in the evening with the light highlighting it!

Thanks Jackie. I usually get them via my bird friends by them dropping the seeds while feeding them around the house and this flower really took off taller than any previously!

A real treat!

My laughing sunflower. This flower looked like it was holding its chin and laughing in the sun. I am glad I took the picture when I did, because the next day it had completely changed.

I grow these giant sunflowers next to my garden every year, and people just are in awe of them. I also share my seeds with anyone who wants to try and grow their own.

What do I need to do to get some of the seeds? I would love to grow them next to my fence. :)

A field of sunflowers planted by farmers adjoining our house. They were planted for dove hunting, but I enjoyed the view.

While fishing one summer, I decided to take photos near our pond. The butterflies and bees had been drawn to the sunflowers. With a little patience, I managed to take this photo.

This is a unique picture that you have to look closely to see the birds. I looked out our window a few weeks ago to see these birds eating sunflower seeds out of the flowers upside down!

This photo was taken while on a walk around the Maine Medical area of Portland. A friend was inside having a doctor's appointment and I took the chance to capture some of the gardens around the brownstones of the area.

You're right - it is totally beautiful! Isn't it amazing how we can find beauty in the simplest of flowers. The sunflower is as beautiful in our eyes as an orchid! Thanks for sharing it with us and God bless you and your Mom. (08/06/2009)

This bumblebee is almost hidden in his super sized supper. The giant sunflowers grew so well the squirrels were fat all winter. At the end of each post in my garden I grew a giant sunflower. They towered at well over 10 feet and enticed many different birds to the garden as well as people walking by to stop and take a look.
