Sunflower Snacker

I planted some "Autumn" sunflowers this year just to see sunflowers in autumn colors. I've cringed every time we had a storm, hoping the wind doesn't break the stalks so I can see the blooms. Finally, I actually have some different colors blooming.

The really different colored one was sort of a cream-color with purple-ish center. Unfortunately, it appears we have a sunflower bandit. Pretty sure our deer thought we planted a tasty snack just for them as they traveled on through during the night. Little buggers.


  1. Your sunflowers look great - at least the ones that didn't get eaten. We get sunflowers every year, but they come up where they want to, usually by one of the garages. We don't have to worry about the wind knocking them over, they seem to survive anything. But they're wild.

  2. Love those flowers - more colors in sunflowers than I've ever seen!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
