Sunflowers always face the sun. They make our days so bright. And as we face the Son of God, we travel in His Light. Then JOY will fill our lives on earth, though troubles come our way. He is our refuge, sure and safe, to guide us every day. Elma Halgason
Bob and I have been taking some day trips within a short distance of our home. We recently went to our second home for some serious flower therapy and relaxation…Biltmore.
The sunflowers are amazing and the bees were really enjoying them.
As far as we could see…..sunflowers!
Each sunflower can contain as many as 1,000 to 2,000 seeds.
Sunflowers are native to the Americas and were domesticated around 1000 B.C.
Bob is such a great sport. He allowed me to photograph him in the sunflowers.
The wild flowers were making great companions to the sunflowers.
This young girl came along as I was photographing. She was so precious.
The French word for sunflower is “tournesol”, which means “turns with the sun.”
Bob sneaked this picture with his phone. I am very intense trying to get these pictures just right.
There are about 70 species of sunflowers.
“Many flowers open to the sun but only one follows it constantly. Heart be thou the sunflower, not only open to receive God’s blessing, but constant in looking to Him.” …Jean Richter
Thank you for joining me today.

Dianne, what gorgeous sunflowers and the perfect time to take these photos. They are happy flowers and make me smile. How nice to live so close to the Biltmore.
Pam, thank you for going to Biltmore with me. We are so blessed to live in this beautiful place. Biltmore is a magical place. It is the gardens and streams and natural beauty that I love so much.
