Yellow Sunflower

Yellow sunflower is the most common color to see during the summer. I love growing them. The squirrels and the birds love them. In fact, I don't think I could even save a seed this year because these two critters have been eating them so far.

Ants also seemed to like them because I saw a line of ants on the stems, leaves and flowers! I don't like to share my sunflowers, but I don't have any choice unless I caged them.

Some of my yellow sunflowers also have streaks of orange-brown color on them! This year though, the sunflowers in my yard didn't grow that big or tall while others were gigantic! I think my soil needs to be fertilized and fed.

If I'm not mistaken, this is a Baltimore Oriole bird caught eating my sunflower seeds! If it is not, please let me know. I only get to snap one photo, and it quickly flew away. I'm hoping to see it again soon.

Joining Mellow Yellow and Macro Monday!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love that Oriole. Looks like he is giving you the stare down with your camera. Awesome pictures. Blessings.

  2. I love sunflowers, they are so bright and cheery. Lovely photos!

  3. Your culprit didn't stay long, did he? He is simply beautiful. I am glad you were quick enough to capture a shot.

  4. Hi, Mumsy...It is so good to see your post tonight. I have missed you since I have been devoting all of my time and efforts to my “Climbing” blog. I have not posted on my "Buttons for Baga" in ages because I have not been doing much sewing, knitting, or quilting. The Arthritis in my hands has name me modify my hobbies a bit. Have been concentrating on studying the camera and working on my photography...and it keeps me on my toes. I have sososo much to learn. Your captures this week are lovely. Now there are three of us posting this week who have seen a big difference in the flower production this year. I wonder what is going on. Take care and stop by to see me when you get a moment. genie

  5. Wow your sunflower has a very beautiful slight deep orangey color. Just gorgeous and the bird that is cute.

  6. Lovely! You have a choice of growing more sunflowers to produce more than enough seeds for the critters.

  7. oh, what a bonus, a yellow bird with the sunflower, life is truly beautiful around.

  8. I love the sunflowers Mumsy! I just posted some on my blog.

  9. beautiful the oriole!

  10. Even though it's stealing your seeds, it's awfully pretty!!!!


I promise to visit you soon! But if your profile isn't public, and if you use GOOGLE+ comment form, I won't be able to return comment!
