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.

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.

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!

I love all flowers, but wildflowers are my favorite. It's amazing just how many types there are, and how beautiful some are. I spotted a bunch of these bright yellow faces on the side of a road, and grabbed my camera to get a few shots.

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 photo was taken just before the sun went down last week. The sky was awesomely blue. Do you see the Bumble Bee?

As a special gift to me each summer, my husband plants Mammoth sunflowers, my favorite variety, and a few new varieties so that I can see them from my kitchen window.

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.

I wanted some pretty colors in my garden so I picked a sunflower mixed pack of seeds. I was so delighted with the different beautiful flowers I got and this is one of them.

Oh my gosh! This is lovely. I can vision myself being there and seeing the millions of sunflowers. I love this picture. It's pretty enough to have matted and put in a frame. As far as you can see there are sunflowers going, going and going forever. (09/04/2009)

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.

Hey, we grow them big in Ontario. Yippeee, we had one a couple of years back and it towered over everyone in the family. No one could believe how tall it was and had over 60 heads on it (07/21/2005)

These sunflower plants came up underneath our bird feeder and we let them grow so the birds could grow their own food. That's my husband playing around in the sunflowers for the camera.
