Crazy for Sunflowers

This summer I’m very involved with sunflowers.

The sunflowers growing on the west side of the house are blooming.

Ours are blooming well and attracting bees and gold finches.

Now we’re chasing them all over the local counties.

The Sunflower Garden in Carroll County offers pick-your-own sunflowers ($10 for a large bunch) and other cut flowers ($12 a bunch).

Rows of flowers ripe for the picking.
I was only interested in sunflowers.

The sunflowers at The Sunflower Garden will peak around August 15th.

I have 3 bouquets of happy sunflowers at the house for the mere price of $10.

What’s your floral focus this summer?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
