Sunflower Love 2014. Can two sunflowers show love for each other? I seriously think so! Look. We were well into 2014 here in Jacksonville, Florida. My second DIY garden of sunflowers was flourishing with many plants ranging well above five feet. On May 28th, I actually measured one plant at 85 inches! That's over seven feet at 75 days.
I was so impressed with all the colorful and varied flowers in my garden. What's particularly amazing is that the entire garden is from my seeds harvested from the first garden in 2013.
Each day, I was out in my sunflower garden photographing the many incredible blossoms. It is truly like a spiritual experience for me. Once in a while, I come upon a flower that seems to speak to me more so than the others. Well, heck, if I am to be honest, they all seem to speak to me.
When I spotted two yellow flowers that were face-to-face, it became an interesting photograph. Over the course of a few days, I watched them and marveled at what seemed to be a conversation of sorts. I know people like me talk to our plants, but do they talk to each other. I seem to think so ... seriously!

Thanks for visiting!
So, what did you think of my two romantic sunflowers? I'm telling you, the romance went on for days ... back and forth; back and forth! It was the most incredible thing to watch. Like two flowery people engaging in a romantic endeavor. And, it played out right under my nose; I could see it each day from my home office window that overlooks my backyard.
