I apologize for over posting about sunflowers. I really do love them. I get a new bloom every week and it’s like seeing a new smile in the backyard. I prematurely ruled out my Zinnias to be a total disaster on a previous post but I have pruned the affected leaves which had a lot of pest bites and it helped. Not only do my Zinnias look somewhat healthy, still not as thick as I would have liked but much better than the way they were.
I only have but a few months to enjoy these flowers before they fall to the ground. Next year God-willing, I am considering of planting only sunflowers as suggested by my husband. I suppose it reminded him of a dream he had which had a spiritual meaning. I have seeds for other kinds of flowers and I hope it will still be viable next Spring. I am still waiting for the Helichysum (Strawflower) to bloom.
