Home flowers sunflowers


by greenrabbitdesigns




I love sunflowers, they are my very favourite flowers.

Unfortunately I haven’t had great success with them this summer thanks to those pesky slugs! The first lot of seedlings were eaten by them and the second lot didn’t fare that much better but I did manage to save some plants. In the past I have grown them to eleven feet tall, not this year sadly.





I have been supplementing my lack of home grown ones with some shop bought ones to brighten up my home.

I’ve also made a little Sunflower bunny and I’m keeping her all to myself because after 135 bunnies, I thought it was time I had one of my own and as it was my birthday yesterday I decided she would be my present to myself! 🙂

135!!!!!! Wow, you’ve been very busy, Vivienne. You totally deserve to keep your latest beauty, Sunflower, for yourself.
Hope you were thoroughly spoilt on your Birthday, and had a wonderful day.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday my friend.

May your birthday last all week and may it be the best ever Vivienne. Pixie and Elizabeth say hello. I am glad you made a beautiful bunny for yourself. I wonder what the next bunny will be ? Sunflower yellow must be your favourite colour, photos of them are so lovely. Elizabeth x x.

Happy bIrThDaY! So you are a September girl, Vivienne? How wonderful you’ll be off on holidays soon to celebrate this beautiful month. And speaking of beautiful, your personal bunnies is so gorgeous! We have a huge field stretching to the horizon of sunflowers which are wonderful in summer but now they all look bedraggled and old. Such a shame!

Robin Elaine September 10, 2014 - 1:27 pm

Birthdays in my family last the entire week, so like Elizabeth’s earlier post…have a wonderful week of celebration and may the new year be filled with the love of family and friends. And of course, lots of yarn, fabric, ribbons and buttons!!! 🙂

Happy birthday Vivienne, and what a beautiful bunny to keep all to yourself, you deserve her, I can’t believe you resited the temptation for so long.
