sunflowers (almost #WordlessWednesdays)

 


Ah! sunflower, weary of time,

Who countest the steps of the
sun,

Seeking after that sweet golden
clime

Where the traveller’s journey
is done;


Where the youth pined away with
desire,

And the pale virgin shrouded in
snow,

Arise from their graves and
aspire;

Where my sunflower wishes to
go.

–William Blake (1757-1827)

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
