Ah! sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the
Seeking after that sweet golden
Where the traveller’s journey
Where the youth pined away with
And the pale virgin shrouded in
Arise from their graves and
Where my sunflower wishes to
–William Blake (1757-1827)

Alice, wow! I'm coming to you, if I want sunflower images! These are great! Very uplifting.
Lovely sunflowers. I haven't grown them for a long time but I do have some Jerusalem artichokes which do have sunflower like blooms and the roots are edible.
WOW those are absolutely stunning! I especially love the ones with the bee!
I agree w/Kebba and think Lily's idea is stellar.You should shown Martha the "sunflower with bee" water color you did and really "wow" her. Can you grow Jerusalem artichokes in a pot? If so. let's try it. I'll look the method up online if you, my master gardener, will vet it.
