Sunflower Bouquet

20120822-161922.jpg

Just a quick photo today. I snipped some of my “failed” sunflowers for this arrangement, and added in some greenery from a previous bouquet, some fragrant mint and a snapdragon, both of which grow like weeds in our yard. My big sunflowers were ready for harvest, their heads drooping away from the sun, revealing the yellow stem that signals harvest time. They’re sitting in paper bags now, drying so that I can easily harvest the seeds. The ones that got nearly eight feet tall will be replanted next summer! I loved having these in our garden this year, next to the corn they look so cheery and natural.
