Penny, this is lovely. I don't have any sunflowers growing in the garden, but just today I was thinking that I need to go buy a bouquet. ~ Sarah
I love sunflowers and usually get them from my youngest daughter for my birthday. I also buy them several times a year. They last so long!Dropping by from Met Monday.AllisonAtticmag
Great photos, Penny! Our sunflowers along the roadsides are just starting to open, too.
The happiest of all flowers I think. Love the metamorphosis.
Gorgeous! I love sunflowers but have never personally grown them myself. Thanks so much for sharing!Sharlotte
Penny....Love seeing the growing stages of the flower in photos! My next door neighbor's little girl is growing her own gigantic ones this summer and we ooh and ahh over them every evening!~Hugs, Patti
Your photos are so clear it looks like I can just reach in and touch it. What a gorgeous flower and yes very country French!
What a fun subject for metamorphosis Monday. This is nature's transformation at it's best. Your photographs are beautiful.Karen
They are such sunny, showy flowers:>) What time frame were these taken in? A day, two days?
A lovely trail.....
Sunflowers are amazing!!! I love them...Happy MM

Being from Kansas - we just can't get enough of those beautiful flowers! Thanks for sharing. Sandi
Penny, your sunflower pictures are beautiful!!! Love your new header too. So pretty! Sunflowers just make you smile, don't they? I bet it is hot up your way, because it was HOT in Boone this past weekend. We had a fun trip and the wedding was gorgeous! Love & blessings from NC!
Nothing says 'summer' in the garden like a tall sunflower.
Hi Penny,I don't have any Black eyed Susans or Sun Flowers growing in my yard, but plenty are growing at my moms place :) I love the pace over here at your place, as well as your passion and spirit :)I want to tell you for some time now my daughter has favored the name Penny...In fact she has said that when she has a daughter Penny is a top name on her name list :)Penny my daughter is soon to be 17 and I think at that tender year she shows all signs of being an old soul. She has passion for vintage, and turning the new into the old.Thank you Penny again for your visit :)xoxoDore
How fun to get shots like this...magic! :D
What beautiful photos, Penny...so summer...
I don't think there is anything lovelier or more happy than a sunflower!! These images just made me smile Penny!!Love,Sue
I would say this is a perfect metamorphosis, and definitely one with a perfect outcome.I've never grown sunflowers, but I agree that they are beautiful.
What fun to watch the sunflowers unfurl through your photo's. I like your new blog banner too.Darla
Your photos are fabulous!Sunflowers always bring a smile to my face.Thank you.Debbie@houseatthelake
Hi Penny, i am following this blog too now! You were right, I enjoyed every minute (I just spent an hour looking and reading...saving more for later)! I loved your bathroom remodel and yoru black and white touches, your black and white toile, your love of yellow..so many of those things I have used as well. Of course I have moved so many times I keep redecorating! Right now I am getting into the Frenchy blue color with the yellow...and am working on a new dining room and living room scheme. Stay tuned!
You caught it so well...excellent photography!
Lovely! We grew a few rows of giant sunflowers one year. They were amazing, I can't imagine what it would be like to see a whole field of them. The best part was putting the dried heads out for the birds to eat the seeds!
Beautiful! I absolutely love sunflowers and can't help but be happy when I see them!
Hi Penny, sunflowers are so cool. Mine are blooming everywhere. Beautiful pictures.HugsGail
Mine are finally blooming and it does just that "happens over night".
Just beautiful Penny...don't you think they look like they are smiling at you...Love Sunflowers and seeing the birds eating the seeds...Hugs and smiles to you my Dear friend...Gl♥ria
Penny, thanks for sharing your sunflower with us. They always make me smile-they just look so bright and cheerful! Have a great day!
This is beautiful! I loved seeing the progression.
Oh they're beautiful! One of my favorite flowers!Hugs,Donna
Loved seeing the evolution of this beautiful flower! Looks like a frame worthy photo too!
Hi PennyI love sunflowers in the garden! Do you like to save the seeds for birds? I put a paper bag over the flower as it goes to seed to stop the squirrels and birds from destroying the flower. Pretty picture of the flower blooming!~Ann
Hi Penny! This is so pretty! I loved seeing the opening! Did you see any sunflower fields while you were in France? Thanks for popping in to see me.be a sweetie,Shelia ;)
Your pictures are fabulous! I agree, sunflowers are so happy. They seem to brighten the spirit.
Penny, your sunflowers are beautiful. I was just reading Kelee's post and she posted them too. Very impressive. Our small garden is doing wonderful. We ate our first ripe tomatoes today.It is good to be home. Thank you for your visits Penny, they mean a lot to me.Hugs, Jeanne
Lucky, lucky! I love sunflowers!
Aren't they amazing, Penny????? You captured some great pictures of the flowering process.... Hope you are enjoying life there in NC..Hugs,Betsy
Due to the messiness of my lovely garden birds we also have many sunflowers popping up in all the beds. No matter where they are I leave them to finish their lovely cycle of life when again they will feed my birds.~ ~Ahrisha~ ~
Amazing and beautiful! I love sunflowers - they just are such happy flowers!Manuela
Love your sunflowers. It is on my to do list for one year...never have grown them.
Oh La La :) Very country French indeed! Hugs,Dena
What beautiful images! YOu caught them magnificently!Yvonne
beautiful pictures! I just discovered a sunflower field not far from our home. I posted about it on my blog. I took my girls there to take some pictures. I wish I could grow sunflowers but something always gets at them.
