A Week of Flowers 2021, Day Two

Today is the second day of my Week of Flowers, where I am inviting you all to join in with me and post a bright and cheerful photo of a flower or two each day for a whole week.

So many have already contributed on Day One with beautiful reminders of what has flowered this year and what will be in the coming Spring. So if you haven’t joined in yet, please do, and leave a comment below to share. Let’s cheer up this dark time of year!

My garden has brought me so much pleasure this year, and I am sharing some of the sunshine colours today.

I especially loved my sunflowers this year, which benefitted from warm and damp weather as opposed to the hot and dry springs and summers we have had in recent years. Here is a link to more photos of them in The ‘Edge.

Wishing you all a sunny day!

    • Thanks Chris. That peony took several years to flower and has been pampered, but I think it is finally established now! Great that you are joining in! 😃

    • It is rather odd for me to think of sunflowers flowering in time for Christmas. 😃 I don’t think mine would rebloom if I cut them in this climate, but it would be interesting to hear if they do in yours. Some of mine did have side branches though, which went on and on producing new flowers for weeks.

      • This far south things are odd, I was pruning suckers off tomato plants today and ate the first fresh corn of the season yesterday. I will leave the sunflowers to see what happens. Thanks for the input.

    • Thank you Anna. Sadly only a few minutes of sunshine and then drizzle and sleet all afternoon! But the various contributions have kept me busy admiring other people’s flowers. 😃 The top flower is the same Heliopsis as below – ‘Sommersonne’ (summer sunshine) which is a perfect name for it! ☀️🌻☀️

      • My comment on your post isn’t getting through Anna, so here it is! Sorry! :
        An orchard full of daffodils is just so romantic. It reminds me of my Grandmother’s home… they had a farm and when they retired and got rid of the chicken house in the orchard it was planted up with daffodils which spread. Those figures in your photo are not real I hope! Wild boar with babies can be very aggressive…. 😉

    • Hi Kris. Fog can be so depressing, can’t it. We get a lot of it in winter but thenit is especially nice when the sun comes through! The peony took a few years to flower, but was gorgeous this summer. I’ll be right over to visit your post. Thanks Kris!
