Many of our Evening Sun sunflowers have already bloomed and giving not one bloom but many blooms per-plant. So many shades of colour as well and guessing the colour when it was only a bud was fun. Here are the many smiling faces of the Evening Sun Sunflower with our hope that 2011 will be a very good year for us and especially for Rayyan. I always associate this sunflower with Rayyan for happy thoughts and positive thinking.
My first experience sowing this Evening Sun sunflower seeds was a day before I gave birth to Rayyan. I was so determine to finish sowing this seeds and other plant seeds according to my plan that I did not even realised I was having cramps and Rayyan is going to see the real world soon.I thought it was back pain or my muscle aching because I have a heavy tummy and Rayyan was due for another 2 weeks .LOL. I guessed back then I was preparing myself that when I gave birth to Rayyan we might have to stay in the hospital for long time since our 32 weeks scan show that Rayyan has a severe heart condition. But we just stayed a week in the hospital and after that nurses come and visit us almost everyday at home which is good.
Our first Evening Sun sunflower plants bloomed profusely when Rayyan was discharged from his second admission to hospital due failure to thrive after his first surgery. We spend most of our 2010 New Year in the hospital. The sunflower this year has more blooms than last year indicating 2011 will be a good year as we hope for Rayyan. Also we had the opportunity to do a few travelling this month which has been so much fun as we had always avoid long-distance travel due to Rayyan condition.
This is my favourite colour for Evening Sun sunflower. Which is your favourite colour?
I am aiming to keep this flower seeds and it next door neighbour which at least 2 metre tall. One of the bloom has already begun to dry but it is too tall to collect the seeds so I am leaving it there if no harm will come upon it.At the other side of our backyard fence Evening Sun sunflower festive.
May you have a wonderful 2011 year!
