The idea of A Week of Flowers 2020 was to raise our spirits and brighten up these dismal grey November days. I think it has done just that, thanks to all those participating! We have seen some fabulous flowers (and bees, butterflies, etc) and I have certainly been reminded of summer days, spring sunshine and autumn foliage. So let’s continue with day six! Photos from late summer in the Sunshine Bed today…
It is not too late to join in. Just post a photo of a flower or two from your 2020 garden and leave a comment below with a link to your post.
Thank you for visiting!
Kansas is known for its sunflowers. Thanks
Thanks for visiting. They are wonderful flowers. 🌻

I love that you have names for your garden beds. I must get more creative with my descriptions. The Sunshine Bed sounds far more inspiring than the names I use, such as “the garden beside the front fence” which is so boring in comparison! Your flowers in todays photos look very happy dancing in the sun. 🙂
Here’s my contribution for Day 6 ~ https://homelifeonline.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/a-week-of-flowers-day-6/
When I started the garden in 2018 I wanted clarity from the beginning so named the beds from the start! (They have German names too! 😉) Thanks Joanne!
Another great selection Cathy. What a blue, blue sky to emphasize the helianthus. And I love your echinacea. I tried some of the hybrids but they didn’t last well here, but I’m ready to try them again!
This Echinacea is another I planted this year and even if they don’t all survive the winter I think I will buy a couple every year as annuals anyway. They are one plant I will never give up, no matter how often they fail! (My usual rule for other plants. is ‘third time lucky’ or give up! 😉)
Your sunshine bed sheds a lot of light, Cathy! My sunflowers were a washout this year – lovely to see yours! Here’s my link: https://gardendreamingatchatillon.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/a-week-of-flowers-day-6/
Hi Cathy. My sunflowers were much better last year and I was disappointed this year. My own fault for not watering I suppose! 😉
At least you got them outside, mine died in the greenhouse!
Beautiful! This post series is a great idea to uplift the spirit! Here are my images. https://earthsunfilm.com/a-week-of-flowers-day-six/
Thanks Jerome. Great you could join us!
Sunny, indeed. the sunflowers look enormous. I love them…here is mine. https://theshrubqueen.com/2020/11/27/a-week-in-flowers-butterflies-on-friday/
It is good to look back at how well (or badly) certain plants did this year and my sunflowers were not as good as the year before. But still they flowered for me!
They look pretty good from here!
Your summer beauties bring joy, Cathy! I always envy your echinacea, and the helianthus just shout SUMMER. I went back to summer today as well: https://gardensatcoppertop.com/2020/11/27/day-6-a-week-of-flowers/
I love Echinacea more and more each year and hope some of mine will get established long-term. It was nice to see so many summer flowers again today March! 😃

Lovely, daisies for every colour of the rainbow. Today I am sharing poppies: https://frogenddweller.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/a-week-of-flowers-day-6-27-11-2020/
The colourful posts today have been a blessing as our world was monotone, covered in a thick kayer of ice!
Oh blue skies, sunshine and flowers for a cold grey November day – the prefect recipe for warmth and cheer. Just what height did those sunflowers in the background get to? My flowers today will not come as a surprise to you Cathy 😄 Here they are :
The very tall sunflowers are hardy ones and were taller than me. 1m 80 ish? Maybe taller! 🌻
Chinese Sweetshrubs are my choice for this day. A visit to Atlanta Botanical Gardens. It is always a wonderful place to lose one self in beauty! http://robertsnapspot.com/2020/11/27/a-week-of-flowers-day-6/
Botanical gardens can be fascinating. Thanks Robert!

Just seeing that blue sky and sunflowers is uplifting. November is such a gray, dreary one here, your idea for a week of flower posts is just what we need! https://wp.me/p3O3z4-2Ei
This has been a real success and I am so pleased so many have joined in and that you are enjoying it too. 😃 It has kept me busy and distracted all week. Just what I needed too! Thanks Eliza. xx
Cathy your Sunshine Bed I love. The echinaceas and the helianthus and the sunflowers and the blue sky say JOY, Summer, I love them, how those wonderful flowers animate.

Thank you Margarita. The blue sky alone is beautiful, even without the flowers! 😉 🤗🌻
